[liberationtech] Rethink Supply Chains Tech Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to flag a new challenge competition that may be of interest to
folks on the LiberationTech list.

*Rethink Supply Chains: the Tech Challenge to Fight Labor Trafficking*
launched last week. The Challenge is an open call to use technology to
address key challenges associated with labor trafficking in global supply
chains – specifically, enhancing workers’ voices and ability to connect
with each other and report labor violations, increasing transparency around
exploitative foreign labor recruitment, and enhancing traceability of
products and labor conditions in at-risk sectors.

Rethink Supply Chains will award $500,000 in prizes, including $20,000 cash
prizes for finalist ideas and an ultimate grand prize winner grant of
$250,000 to build out the proposed idea. The Challenge is being led by
Humanity United, a part of the Omidyar Group which represents the personal,
professional, and philanthropic interests of Pierre and Pam Omidyar.

First round submissions are open until December 13th, 2015. Check it out
and consider submitting as there is surely overlap in the areas of
expertise and interest on this list and this challenge.
