Hardware Freedom Day 20th April 2013

HFDAY

Celebrate Hardware Freedom Day on April 20th 2013!

Let’s celebrate Hardware Freedom Day on 20th April 2013
Hardware Freedom Day is a yearly celebration of Open Hardware! Every year since 2004 hundreds of teams have been celebrating Software Freedom Day, often showcasing Open Hardware in the process. At the Digital Freedom Foundation (formerly known as SFI) we thought it was about time to have a special day just for Open Hardware. So get your hackerspace in order, your team up to speed and register your event right now!

Support HFD

Your organization believes hardware should be hackable and/or is deeply involved in Open Hardware. You believe that Hardware Freedom Day needs traction and are willing to help us with the promotional efforts by putting one of our web banners and countdown on your website.

Let us thank you for the help, as every contribution is important and follow that link for more details.

Organize HFD

You love to hack all the gadgets you have a chance to put your hand on and/or are a member of a hackerspace? 

The time has come to join all the other hackerspaces in the world and celebrate Hardware Freedom Day on April 20th: We have drafted a guide to get you started, simply register your event but don’t hesitate to join our mailing list and exchange ideas with others.

Attend HFD

You’ve heard about Open Hardware and would love to discover more, be able to ask questions and see some live action? You already have some hackable stuff and would like to meet with like-minded people in your neighbourhood?

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
