The Program

What is PowerOn?

PowerOn Program is a program administered by the LGBT Tech Partnership. While LGBT Tech focuses on LGBTQ+ tech policy, PowerOn works to connect LGBTQ+ community centers with technology.

 

In short, we help give older tech (computers, cell phones, laptops, etc.) a second life - tech that can have a life-changing impact on LGBTQ+ individuals.

How Does it Work?

We take older, unwanted technology through the following steps:

  1. Wipe any memory with NIST 800-88.

  2. Test it to make sure it's operational.

  3. If it works, we refurbish it.

  4. If it doesn't work, we make sure it's responsibly recycled, meaning nothing ends up in a landfill.

We then distribute devices to LGBTQ organizations and individuals who otherwise do not have access to technology that we take for granted everyday.
