FIX216: Criminal Justice Reform

Other tech

Join us for the next iteration of #Fix216!

We’re intentionally bringing together people from Tech, Design, Community Organizing, and Policy backgrounds to ensure we hear from a diverse set of opinions and generate solutions that represent a wide variety of experiences.

On November 22, 2014, a 12-year-old boy playing alone in a familiar place became a martyr for a cause he didn’t volunteer to serve. Hack Cleveland came together as a response to the police involved killing of Tamir Rice. As a direct action, Hack Cleveland organized the city’s first civic hackathon called "FIX 216."

A civic hackathon is an event where people work together with urgency and creativity to produce a technical solution that will make their cities better. #FIX216 engaged Cleveland residents to produce technical solutions that would facilitate an open dialogue, idea generation, and awareness-building around public safety, excessive force and the Department of Justice consent decree in Cleveland. It was held May 29th and 30th, 2015, and welcomed a diverse group of more than 70+ attendees, who came together to create five projects addressing various challenges facing Cleveland. To build upon "FIX 216" and our work since 2015, Hack Cleveland is organizing a community-centered event that will focus on sustainable solutions that will advance criminal justice reform.
