It's OUR Tech
Our Upcoming Revolution's Technologies (OUR Tech)
Welcome to the intersection of Afrocentric activism and technology where we are powered by empowerment
Originally imagined in 2017, OUR Tech is the now working brain child of multiple Black student activists from across the country. We were founded under the guides of taking Black economic sovereignty and collectivism into digital space. As of 2021, we now help create digital platforms for activism-oriented Black students, entrepreneurs, and established businesses. Check out this website and our other platforms to support the cause!
OUR Upcoming Projects
The FreeDM Application
The FreeDM application is a social media hub centered on everything Black activism. Folks from all walks of life can publish afrocentric works, contribute to activist groups, support Black-owned businesses and mentor lifelong learners in afrocentric activism. If you want to learn more you can take a look at the link below and our Instagram!
This app is an innovative and unique tool for transit riders and general commuters. We will be releasing more information on it soon as it nears release on the App Store
QU is a mobile and web application that allows multiple users to choose and vote on music selections from preset playlists in group settings such as friend gatherings or venues. We are excited to provide more details and the first downloadable version of QU at our upcoming fundraiser and launch event in April!
OUR Tech’s thorough consultation process can help you take your digital business ideas and turn them into a reality. If accepted to join OUR family you will be assigned a personal case manager, who will double as your liaison through the consultation process. For no out of pocket cost we will help you envision, design, code, market and scale your digital business while still aligning it within the histories and ethics of structural activism. Come join OUR movement!

We create new economic empowerment zones and infrastructure within digital landscapes for the communities, businesses, and people that often lack access to such interventions. By providing our clients with step-by-step help and guidance to turn their entrepreneurial ideas into reality and we set forth empowerment through creativity and modernization in hopes of generating a positive impact in the world.
