#ShutdownPL Town Hall

Monday, April 5, 2021 from 6–7 PM (ET) / 3–4 PM (PT)

We’re interested in inviting (and covering the full cost of attendance for) HBCU students to ICFP 2021. If you are an HBCU student interesting in attending ICFP 2021—or know anyone who can connect us with a student who is—please email us at!

We’re having a town hall event to start planning what we’d like to see for #ShutdownPL @ ICFP 2021!

Are you interested in #ShutdownPL or anti-racism in the programming languages community? Do you:

If any of these apply, we’d love to have you at our town hall! We’ll connect you with existing organizers and provide a space for you to give input to help guide our plans for this year’s #ShutdownPL @ ICFP. No previous involvement in #ShutdownPL is required.

This town hall will be over Zoom. We’ll do quick introductions, then move into breakout rooms so that attendees can talk in small groups with organizers.

I’m interested!
