On Friday December 4, 2015 Hack Cleveland hosted “Hack Cleveland @ Year 1” in the auditorium of the Intergenerational School at St. Luke’s Pointe. The 50 attendees represented various facets of Cleveland’s community – activist, grassroots organizers, academia, data nerds, techies and those just curious about social justice tech. The event kicked off with Justin Bibb, founding member describing to the attendees why Hack Cleveland exist and what brought the group together a year ago. That was followed by Nicole Thomas and Seth Pinckney providing a brief recap of what the group had been up to since its inaugural event #Fix216 back in May 2015.
Erika Anthony, Evelyn Burnett and Nicole Thomas shared with the attendees three ways they can be involved in this social justice tech movement via the following active projects: Social Justice Tech, Inclusive Big Data Economy and #Fix216 Projects. Attendees then had an opportunity to freely flow, world café style, between the three project discussions, learn more, and sign up to help. Cleveland Neighborhood Progress was proud to be a part of this educational and thought provoking event.
