Hackathons

You’re invited: Be part of We Charge Genocide TV Hackathons! 


What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is a virtual, design sprint event. WCGTV hackathons are community building and educational jam sessions where we are hacking the system and hacking our own minds. We want to educate, organize, and advocate for your future.

What is We Charge Genocide TV?
WCGTV is a grassroots, transmedia movement representing BIPOC vs. the United States Government for the continuing crime of genocide. WCGTV is an interactive database, community record, and organizational tool for artists and activists to share work, lead discussions, inspire actions, host collaboration, and accurately reflect the current and historical conditions of Black, Indigenous and People of Color. WCGTV is a project of Calling Up Justice, a transmedia production company centering social justice online, onstage, and in real life!

What are our goals?
Our goal is to continue to build a large group of volunteers who can help us to beat the algorithms and have our revolutionary liberatory content come up first in searches. We are unapologetic about this movement! Our Hackathons are SO SIMPLE and mostly include adding tags for better searching, images for better display, and strategic sharing for increased visibility.

Who are we?
We are an asynchronous group making decisions collectively and acting individually for rapid response. We practice horizontal leadership instead of hierarchical organizing. By design our process is emergent and iterative. We are communicative and intentional.  We center Blackness and use an aggressively intersectional lens. We are BIPOC, Disabled, White Allies, LGTBTQ+, International, and based in the USA.

How can you be involved?
If you’re a student, radical leader, educator or concerned community member we want you to engage with us, help to hack on the project, teach, facilitate, learn, share content and more! Can’t make one of our Wednesday hacks? Let’s talk about how to host your very own Hackathon with our team and your community!
