At a time when the Prince’s #YesWeCode initiative was at an impasse, its co-founder, Van Jones, found a life preserver from another Prince associate. That’s because the artist left behind what Jones calls an “invisible network and army” of activists and non-musicians whom he worked with and supported.
In the artist’s lifetime, he and Jones collaborated on #YesWeCode, an organization that offers tech education to urban American youth, and Jones notes the artist was behind similar ventures. After Prince’s death, #YesWeCode had reached an impasse and it was unclear how to move it forward. Corey Tollefson, the senior vice president of retail and fashion at Infor, a company that specializes in cloud-based software, said his company might be able to help. It’s an example of how Prince’s activists networks are still finding each other and trying to move the late artist’s philanthropic vision forward. Check out the whole story below.
