Hacking for the Common Good

How might practitioners from all sectors collaborate to create tools that promote the common good in our city? How can technology help alleviate and eradicate forms of injustice, teach about God’s unconditional love, or build a healthier and stronger society? Join us as we explore examples from gatherings such as the National Day of Civic Hacking and Leadership Network's Code for the Kingdom as models for mobilizing technologists, entrepreneurs, investors, hi-tech accelerators, ministry leaders, artists, and others to serve the city.

You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master. Isaiah 58: 7 - Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Acts 16:5 - So the churches were being strengthened in the faith, and were increasing in number daily. James 1:27 - Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
