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


Organized by Leslie Martinez, Sriya Sarkar, and Helen Carey.
