Wage war on violence, replace guns with computers!
Computers for Guns A Project of Digit All Systems
More computers to trade = more guns off Baltimore streets
“We just can’t sit on the sidelines and wait for the breeze to blow over.”
Lance Lucas is ready to wage war on violence in Baltimore using technology. Through his nonprofit, Digit All Systems (DAS), Lucas will be trading refurbished computers for guns, taking firearms off the streets and providing modern tools to succeed.
DAS provides computer certification courses specifically for members of the city’s “untapped population”: predominantly black Baltimoreans from overlooked neighborhoods searching for the means to escape unemployment and climb out of poverty. The Guns for Computers event is the next step in tapping into these residents.
Every person who turns in a gun for a computer will be registered in DAS's IT classes and programs, putting our neighbors on a path to a high wage job in the technology services, cyber security, and many other industry jobs.
The event will be held on July 13th, so DAS needs our help today! Every computer that is available to trade means another dangerous firearm is taken off the streets.
How can you help?
Unlike traditional firearms trade-ins, Digit All Systems is providing a useful, high-tech computer along with training and software to provide opportunity and incentive to Baltimore residents.
For just $33 you can provide a fully refurbished computer, with RAM upgrades, software and network cards to an at-risk Baltimore resident. Your gift will take a weapon off the streets of our city and open up the door for someone to a promising career in the IT industry.
