Last year, Mission:Launch’s first annual Rebuilding Re-entry Hackathon convened hundreds of civic hackers, local government representatives and community organizers around one shared goal: making it easier for former prisoners to reintegrate into society.
The organization, which recently won a $50,000 Small Business Administration grant to create an accelerator for returning citizens, is extending the invitation again this fall.
The second annual hackathon will take place on Saturday, Oct. 31 and Sunday, Nov. 1 at Impact Hub DC.
It will focus on three themes:

  1. The right to work
  2. Adapting resources to fluid borders
  3. Sequencing services, or assuring a smooth transition in the 90 days after release
