Hacks/Hackers is a rapidly expanding international grassroots journalism organization with dozens of groups (and counting) and thousands of members across four continents (and counting). Hacks/Hackers’s mission is to create a network of journalists (“hacks”) and technologists (“hackers”) who rethink the future of news and information.

Projects and topics should clearly intersect with the overall mission of Hacks/Hackers and MisinfoCon communities with focus on trust online and trustworthiness, information veracity, reliability and integrity and envisioning new solutions and new information networks and systems.
