Hacking Discrimination

On April 28th and 29th, cross disciplinary students,  faculty and staff as well as interested individuals from the community outside of MIT will converge to participate in a hackathon.  Our goal is to utilize this proven innovation methodology to disrupt discrimination and racism in our communities, tackling issues with both social and technical complexities. We expect meaningful dialog, learning, networking and solution development that will have far reaching impact.
