Tipping Point is thrilled to be participating in the NYU Wagner Code for Change Hackathon! On Friday, September 28th, at NYU’s Wagner School, we kick off the competition with an afternoon and evening of team matching and gathering, giving technologists, designers, innovators, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies a chance to meet face-to-face, pitch ideas, and form working groups. Over the course of the next two weeks, teams will meet on their own time to collaborate on solutions. On Friday, October 12th, all participants will reconvene at NYU Wagner for a “demo day” when they present their solutions for judging.
As chair of the Voter Assistance Advisory Committee and a member of the Campaign
Finance Board, TPP CEO Art Chang is leading up the effort to work with Hackathon participants to increase civic engagement. Check out our challenge submission here.
