  1. 1. Community building Community #HackDSJ July 17th and 18th, 2015 Hack for Diversity & Social Justice Hackpad bit.ly/hackpad_dsf Social Dashboard j.mp/HackDSJ_Social
  2. 2. White House Presidential Innovation Fellowship Program
  3. 3. Why Baltimore? Why this theme? Economic Mobility: Of the 100 largest counties in the country, Harvard researchers found that Baltimore was where children in low-income households faced the worst odds in terms of upward mobility.
  4. 4. Life Expectancy Life expectancy in 15 Baltimore neighborhoods, including the one where Freddie Gray lived, is shorter than in North Korea
  5. 5. The Children – Our Future •  Baltimore teens (15-19 years old) face poorer health conditions and a bleaker economic outlook than those in economically distressed cities in Nigeria, India, China, and South Africa, •  Teens in Baltimore, along with Johannesburg, saw the highest prevalence of sexual violence, substance abuse, depression, and PTSD. •  They were also most likely to report witnessing community violence.
  6. 6. Income Disparity or Inequality •  In 2014, Baltimore (with unemployment rate of 8.1%, which is nearly 1.5 times than the national rate of 5.5%) had one of the largest gaps between the rich and poor in the country. •  The typical Baltimore resident in the bottom fifth of earners made $13,588 in 2014, whereas those in top 5 percent made an average of $166,924 in 2014.
  7. 7. Race and Income Inequality When it comes to income inequality between blacks and whites, Baltimore is not alone. As FiveThirtyEight reported, this racial disparity is common in cities where at least 10 percent of the population is black.
  8. 8. The Justice System •  Baltimore incarcerates a greater portion of its population than New York City, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles County. •  Baltimore also has one of the highest inmate populations in the country.
  9. 9. Our Hopes and Dreams •  Create data products, models, game strategies, software application that help to solve these problems. •  Do it in the open. •  Create resources that everyone can use and improve upon after this event. •  Interact. Make new friends (and allies). Enjoy the process. Have fun.
