Hack-a-thons have become an important method of community and civic engagement. People from all walks of life enter a space, normally for 20 hours or greater (typically over the course of a weekend), with the intention of creating on-the-spot solutions. Technology is normally a strong component (thus the use of the word “hack”), although solutions are not limited in scope to technology. Community awareness and often some new form of inclusion is a part of the event.


The Rebuilding Re-Entry Social Justice Hack-A-Thon will do all of the above and more during our three day long event. During our three daylong event we will have a speaker series from various stakeholders close to this topic. In addition to technology solutions, we will have civic engagement opportunities for participants who do not have strong technology skills.
