We would like to bring to your attention the opportunity for your students to get involved in an upcoming Hackathon for Good taking place at District Hall in Boston this weekend, January 23rd and 24th. Please find the invitation attached for more information.

#HackTrafficking4Good is a social change hackathon series to combat online trafficking. This particular event will be put on and lead by Attorney General Maura Healey, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Thomson Reuters Data Innovation Lab and Demand Abolition. These leaders hope to harness the knowledge of the local talent pipeline to inspire and create solutions to eradicate sex trafficking online.

Over the course of two days, attendees will have the chance to hear from government officials on this issue and work with the region’s best minds and social change leaders to create a solution.

Given your past leadership in sharing information about the Mass Big Data Tech Trek series, we hope you will engage the talented student developers, project managers and budding computer scientists in your classrooms in this effort.

Thank you, and we’re looking forward to seeing students from your schools at the event!
