Re-entry can be all trick & no treat!

The 2nd Annual Rebuilding Re-entry DC Hackathon is coming

We are excited to announce that registration will open in 1 week, and we hope you will join us!

Last year 250+ people came together, over the course of 3-days, to pitch problems and solutions. Our singular goal was to build prototypes (tech and non-tech alike) towards improving outcomes for residents with arrest and/or conviction records.


From 15 pitches, we closed with 7 working prototype teams committed to incubating their solutions. This year we can't wait to hear what everyone comes up with. Our collective vision is to make re-entry more efficient and effective. Based on feedback from our first event, we are providing challenge statements.

  • The right to work - nearly 70% of returning citizens face workforce discrimination, what opportunities exist to create pathways to economic independence?
  • Adapting to fluid borders - How can Washington, DC as well as surrounding counties leverage the power of data and planning to  share resources, best practices and more?
  • Sequencing services - the first 90 days of release from prison or jail are critical; connecting to the proper programs and services makes all the difference, but how can a person know where to start?
