Amplify Diversity, Equality, Inclusion, and Justice
Social Justice Event - June 24-26, 2022
Join us for our annual Social Justice Event, this year in partnership with xBlack in Atlanta. We are so excited to be hosting this event together.
xBlack Alliance Information
xBlack Alliance is a nonprofit on a mission to help Black Creators find opportunities to empower the Black community by using their social media voice. They will achieve this by connecting Black Creators with changemakers from the private, social, and public sectors. Focus areas range from anti-Blackness, social justice, gender equity, voter suppression, diversity & inclusion and so much more. The goal is to activate Black Creators with changemakers who will not only improve the Black community, but also increase the global economy.
Thinking about joining a build team?
Bring your technology and marketing skills to our weekend event where we will once again provide support for dozens of nonprofits around the world. Our Social Justice event focuses on serving nonprofits founded and run by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) or whose mission is social justice oriented.
We are so excited for this opportunity to raise community awareness for those that work tirelessly to support and create justice for people of color. Our goal is to use our platform to unite passionate volunteers into action by using their skills to expand the digital capacity, and ability to impact, of nonprofits on the ground in diverse settings.
Simply register with us to join in. Come as an individual volunteer or bring a team. We welcome teams of coworkers seeking opportunities to connect outside the office. We recommend each tea has at least five members who can confidently cover one or more of the following skillsets:
- Project Management
- WordPress Development
- Content Development
- UX/UI Design
- Digital Marketing.
We encourage teams to work together to be creative in how they tackle this challenging but rewarding weekend. Join us today! Reach out to Erin at [email protected] with questions or requests.
Registration open until June 10th, 2022

THANK YOU! The website that the UPS [volunteer] team build for us during the 48in48 event easily surpassed our expectations both in design and functionality. I got goosebumps as I effortlessly navigated through our new professional website. This new layout will allow families to find the resources they need with ease. I can’t even begin to express how delighted we are with the finished product. We highly value the time, skills and knowledge that 48in48 generously donated.
The event ran smoothly, and while the subject matter was mostly new to me, I always felt confident that assistance was just around the corner. The Saturday Snack & Learn Program was packed full of invaluable information. Many thanks for the opportunity to learn from top professionals.
Thanks again, 48in48 did a phenomenal job, and we are beyond thankful to have been selected for this remarkable and enjoyable opportunity.

"We have never had this kind of support before. Getting into depth about who is our audience on our website, who we want to reach, and that really is defining our message. That's because of 48in48."
