Discuss civic tech’s role in helping returning citizens: Rebuilding Re-entry Demo Day

In June, a group of returning citizens, service providers and civic hackers will demo the apps they started at a November hackathon.

After forming in November, the Rebuilding Re-entry Coalition, a consortium of returning citizens, service providers and civic hacking groups, is rolling out the big enchilada next month: a demo day.

June 4-5 at Impact Hub DC, the coalition will present some of the apps it had started to piece together during the inaugural hackathon, and open a debate about the question: What would a re-entry-friendly city could look like?

Some of the apps created last November include Helping Businesses Help RCsClean Slate (DC): Your Criminal Record Sealing Assistant and DC Open 211 for returning citizens.

“Everyone here is working on the same social issue but we’re all coming at it from different angles,” organizer Laurin Hodge told Technical.ly DC then. Hodge is the executive director of Mission:Launch and daughter of Teresa Hodge, a returning citizen.
