The Power On Campaign was founded by Josh Hutcherson and Straight But Not Narrow (SBNN), human-I-T, The Trevor Project and the LGBT Technology Partnership. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) people and organizations in need receive technology and access to vital digital resources.
Laptops, tablets and smartphones are donated through this program to connect the LGBT community to online resources, while expanding opportunities and helping build support systems.
Each donation of consumer and enterprise level technology to the PowerOn campaign helps human-I-T and its partners continue to develop new resources that benefit the LGBTQ community.
Every device human-I-T distributes includes an instant messaging service called TrevorChat and its affiliated social networking platform, TrevorSpace, for at-risk LGBTQ individuals. Other pre-loaded resources connect LGBTQ youth to CenterLink, the national network of LGBTQ community centers, the GSA Network, GLSEN, PFLAG, Gender Diversity, Lambda Legal, and more!
Everyone wants to feel comfortable in his or her own skin. human-I-T is doing its part by donating technology to help connect LGBTQ individuals to larger empathetic communities and support groups.
