#HackTheViolence Goodie Hack For Developers Hackathon  

Sponsored By Digital Crafts & Amplify 4 Good

Friday, November 17th - Sunday, November 19th, 2017 

Here’s the deal. Way too many people in the United States are affected by violence each year. But Goodie Innovation Lab: Hack The Violence is meant to change that. It is a 4 month social impact pre-accelerator where founders see their ideas about ways to combat violence get turned into reality.

This Coding Hackathon, Phase III in the program, is a 48 hour experience where developers donate their talent, and join the teams of these founders in an effort to turn their clickable prototypes that combat violence into working products.

This is your chance to help those impacted by violence, and possibly win $1,000. It’s a mashup of social good, tech, entrepreneurship and highly-skilled people, and, quite possibly, the coolest community service project you’ll ever experience. Register and join our community of changemakers today!
