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 RCs, Clean 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.
