Crafting Social Change
Affect’s mission is to educate and inspire at the intersection of social change and systemic design, with an emphasis towards boosting the visibility of underrepresented groups and individuals working in the space.
Affect Conf is an annual two-day community conference in Portland, Oregon created to highlight the spectrum of work, design, and culture that social change is built upon. Affect is part talks and part nonprofit group volunteering, featuring stories from activists, creators, and techies working in social impact. Attendees have traveled from Seattle, the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, D.C., and more cities to take part in the event and spent a half day helping out nonprofit partners off-site
