Offer: FACT Social Justice Challenge closes October 4
FACT Social Justice Challenge (2010)
The French American Charitable Trust (FACT) second annual FACT Social Justice Awards closes on October 4, 2010 at 5pm PST. 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.
The Challenge theme this year is “Collaborate for Social Justice.”
FACT 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 that foster collaboration around social justice issues.
Specific technologies could include, but are by no means limited to:
Leveraging use of wikis
Social networking platforms
Citizen journalism and reporting
