Purpose of the foundation
In Dutch our goal is listed as follows:
Het doel van de stichting is sociaal-maatschappelijk onrecht, waaronder begrepen racisme, tegen te gaan met name op het raakvlak met technologie, de maatschappelijke bewustwording hierover te vergroten en om bij te dragen aan een meer gelijkwaardige en rechtvaardige samenleving.
In English our mission statement is:
The Racism and Technology Center uses technology as a mirror to reflect and make visible existing racist practices in Dutch society. As a knowledge center, we provide a platform, resources, knowledge, skills and legitimacy to anti-racism and digital rights organizations to help them create understanding of how racism is manifested in technology with the goal of dismantling systems of oppression and injustice.
