Un-Hack The Vote 2017

The Goal

Inspire young professionals (YPs) to protect the voting rights of racial minorities. This Hackathon will push YPs to learn about redistricting and gerrymandering and propose data and technology-driven solutions that increase public awareness.

The Challenge

Develop an informative way for citizens to learn about redistricting and gerrymandering practices using maps, data, and successful, unsuccessful, and ongoing initiatives. Propose solutions, policies, and movements that will prevent marginalization of our voting rights.
