Tech lawsuits + testing LA’s hyperloop
Join us in supporting Color Of Change
In June, we published our ongoing plan to have a larger positive impact on our team, communities, and clients – specifically through the lens of social justice and racial equity.
As one part of this plan, our team selects an organization each quarter whose work embodies and advances this mission. We then make a monetary donation, help to promote the organization and its work, and identify any other ways that we might be able to support their efforts.
This quarter, we’re proud to announce that our team has selected Color Of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization with over 7 million members.
To learn more about Color Of Change and some of the many ways that you can join us in supporting their efforts, click here.

The DOJ doesn’t “like” Facebook’s hiring practices
The U.S. Department of Justice recently opened a lawsuit accusing Facebook of discriminating against U.S. workers, claiming that Facebook created an unfair hiring system that rewards temporary workers, including those with H-1B visas, over qualified U.S. citizens.
Facebook and other tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft, Alphabet, and Apple argue that “there are not enough American students graduating with science and engineering degrees to meet the demand for filling jobs in areas such as artificial intelligence.”
However, the DOJ’s lawsuit – and a May 2020 report by the Economic Policy Institute – argues that companies like Facebook take advantage of visa programs in order to legally pay workers below market wages.
