We were incredibly inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and wanted to participate in any way we could. We decided to spread awareness on the movement, and help others support it by educating themselves, donating, and more.
What it does
It compiles resources to support the Black Lives Matter Movement. On our website, you can find shows and movies to watch and books to read to educate yourself on the movement. There are funds to donate to and Black-owned businesses to support. You can find your local government officials to reach out to about the movement.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We learned HTML5 and CSS for the first time to code this website, so that was a big challenge. However, we were able to move past this and create a website that effectively spreads important information.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are really proud of the fact that we were able to compile a handful of resources to help spread awareness and information about the BLM movement so that we can continue supporting it as much as we can. We are also proud of our homepage, which has cool CSS features that we learned exclusively for this project.
What we learned
We learned HTML and CSS for this project. We also learned so much about the Black Lives Matter movement through our research for this website.
What's next for Website: Be The Change
We plan on adding a current events page to update users on ongoing issues and developments in the movement. We also want to expand our resources pages.
