Creating Social Innovation Through Tech and Entrepreneurship is a celebration of how innovation in business, technology and the arts can be catalysts in the fight for social justice. Join the three local Washington, DC organizations, DC+Acumen, Hatch International and Social Solutions, who have come together to empower, connect and inform DC's community of changemakers through the Social Innovation Festival.
In recognition of the injustice of mass incarceration, this year's Social Innovation Festival will showcase ideas and solutions that give changemakers a new perspective on how technology and entrepreneurship can help solve one of the most pressing civil rights issues of our time.
This festival will occur over 5 days across 4 different DC venues. Speakers and panelists include representatives from:
Busboys and Poets
The Sentencing Project
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Code for Progress
Congressional Research Institute for Social Work and Policy
Athena Global Alliance
Global Social Enterprise Initiative, George Washington University
and the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council
Attendees have the option of registering for individual events or have an all-access pass for the 5 days.

As of July 15, Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility has collected over 1,000 signatories to their No Secrets Fracking Campaign. They are asking for your... our... continued participation and support. The fracking industry is fighting hard to enter Maryland by claiming there is no proof that fracking harms human health.
Please support the CPSR campaign to expose the ways the fracking industry suppresses important information about the actual and potential health effects of fracking.
If you wish to be involved, consider sharing this petition with your friends and colleagues, and by making a small donation to their effort at www.chesapeakepsr.org. You can raise the profile of medical and health voices in the debate on fracking.
To participate directly in the Maryland campaign, contact Tim Whitehouse, CPSR Executive Director. firstname.lastname@example.org
