Call for Code for Racial Justice (OpenShift.TV mini-series): Five Fifths Voter

New York

August 10, 2021 1:00 pm ADT


๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Short Abstract

Join us to learn about Five Fifths Voter, a Call for Code for Racial Justice Open Source project that empowers minorities to overcome voter suppression setbacks, exercise their right to vote, and ensure their voices are heard. As a result of voter suppression tactics, millions of minorities, especially Black people, have had their votes go uncounted, purged, or simply not submitted. Five Fifths Voter helps users identify correct polling stations, notifies them of state requirements and deadlines, and provides quick access to information most relevant to their personal circumstances.
