Hello friend --
Bixel Exchange celebrates inaugural mitú ACCELERATOR graduates
Tuesday night, we brought more than 100 students, technology, education and community leaders together to celebrate the accomplishments of the 21 students who participated in the inaugural mitú ACCELERATOR cohort. As part of the event, students shared some of the work they developed in the program, and heard from actor Richard Cabral and L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin on the importance of sharing their diverse voices and stories. At the end of the ceremony, graduates were awarded certificates from the City of L.A. and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti. Thank you to our partners: mitú, City of Los Angeles, the Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti and Annenberg Foundation! See the photos.
