The Rumie Initiative is a non-profit that designs technology to mobilize the power of collaboration to improve access to quality digital learning resources, especially for those with little or no Internet connectivity.

Civic tech members are invited to participate in a special problem-solving workshop with Rumie during the hacknight portion of the evening!

Come help us chip away at civic problems by combining technology with the power of our community. We've got everything you need for a perfect Tuesday night: a presentation to learn from, some projects to work on, and pizza (or other food) to snack on!
