CSforALL Commitments:

#CSforALL Commitments are actions by the community to move the needle towards the goal of computer science for all. They play a key role in bringing together the community of CS stakeholders to amplify the progress made, announce new goals and initiatives to advance the mission, and provide visibility to community efforts large and small. Our goal is to lift up the efforts of those doing the work on the ground all year long.
