GlobalHack Announces First Civic Hackathon Project
GlobalHack teams will work together with the Civic Tech for Social Impact Collaborative - including St. Louis County, Rise Community Development, and OpenDataSTL - to create technology solutions to make it easier for people to navigate the criminal justice system and resolve their issues faster. GlobalHack hopes that the solutions developed during these civic hackathons can be implemented not just locally, but nationally as well.
“Data and technology are powerful tools that, when applied to civic challenges, can make St. Louis neighborhoods work better for residents as well as inform and complement community development activities. We are excited to work with GlobalHack as they focus their expertise on the challenge of creating a more resident-focused justice system,” said Eleanor Tutt with Rise Community Development.
