We first met each other at the Hacks4Humanity hackathon that was a part of the fall kickoff for Humanity 101. The hackathon was organized by ASU Project Humanities and Equality TV and was based on the 7 principles of Humanity. Our team organically came together with 3 ASU students, and 2 community members all of whom collaborated to create technology for social good.

ARKHumanity – which came about at a hackathon co-sponsored by ASU – was inspired by this question and developed technology that scans Twitter for messages that suggest a risk of self-harm and connects the author with immediate support. The project has won the Arizona State University Changemaker Challenge’s top prize of $10,000 seed money.
