FACT Challenge logoAs we announced last week, the 2nd annual FACT Social Justice Challenge calls for your innovative Projects that leverage web and/or mobile technologies to foster collaboration around social justice issues. Submissions are now open! You can submit your Project idea from today through October 4th. But remember: you can continue to edit, improve and add to your Project throughout that time – so submit today!

About the FACT Challenge

FACT is committed to addressing the fundamental inequalities and injustices in our society by helping develop and sustain networks of community-based groups in the U.S. and France that educate, organize, and empower people to actively participate in developing public policies that directly affect their lives.

Our Challenge theme this year is “Collaborate for Social Justice." We chose this theme because beneath all the new platforms, widgets, tools, social media, and innovative products lies the potential for people to collaborate in new ways with one another.

The FACT Challenge seeks to surface innovative Projects that leverage web and/or mobile technologies to foster collaboration around social justice issues.
