UPDATE:
The support we have received has been incredible. We are now going to give out copies of the book Hidden Figures as part of the screening!

Hear Me Code
is raising funds to send 200 low-income childen and their families to see the movie, Hidden Figures, on January 28, 2017 and February 4, 2017.  We would like to be able to cover their admission and snacks for movie. If we raise extra funds we would like buy ticket for other young people in the DMV who cannot make it downtown.

The screening will be held at Regal Gallery place and cost per young person is $10.14 and a kid snack pack will be $6.25. The screening will be followed by a panel of groups in DC who offer free opportunities for people to learn to code. We will be having engineers and scientist from NASA, and technology companies are providing swag and educational materials to spur an interest in STEM.

About Hear Me Code
Hear Me Code is an organization that works to diversify the STEM workforce. Run by a group of women-identified volunteers, we offer free, beginner-friendly coding classes for over 2000 women in the DC area. Hear Me Code focuses on leadership development and turning students into teachers. Find out more at hearmecode.com

Let's show our youth in DC that STEM really is for all.

HIDDEN FIGURES is the untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. 

February is Black History month and what better way to celebrate than making sure everyone gets to know this lost bit of NASA history.
