About

Hack the Ban is a hackathon that brings together multidisciplinary creatives (technologists, designers, journalists, etc) and organizations working at the forefront of immigration issues with vulnerable communities. The intention is to help these organizations serve their communities effectively by providing digital media tools and solutions.

Our goals are straightforward:

  1. Design with purpose
  2. Create concrete solutions that can be used RIGHT. NOW.
  3. Foster a technical support community for the resistance

The May 2017 event will be hosted by the Inclusive Innovation Incubator (In3) - D.C's first co-working, training, & incubator space intentional about diversity & inclusion.

The February 2017 event was organized by Leslie Martinez, Sriya Sarkar, and Helen Carey. It was hosted by CUNY CLEAR at NYU's Integrated Digital Media program.
