Hacking Discrimination

The idea of having student teams address issues of discrimination and racism started with MIT Black alumni in Washington, DC – frustrated by violence in the news, continued social and economic roadblocks to progress for minorities, and challenged by President Reif’s call to action: What Are We To Do? A brainstorming session resulted in the development of several concepts, two of which will be included in this hackathon. MIT senior leadership has enthusiastically supported this work. A Hacking Discrimination Fund has been set up at MIT to further this work annually.
