MSNBC PRESENTS “GROWING HOPE LIVE FROM DETROIT” ON FRIDAY, MARCH 27

Joy Reid Hosts One-Hour Special Live from the #YesWeCode Hackathon at the Ford STEAM Lab

NEW YORK – March 24, 2015 – MSNBC will present “Growing Hope Live from Detroit,” on Friday, March 27th at 2 p.m. ET. The one-hour special, sponsored by Ford Motor Company, will be hosted by MSNBC National Correspondent Joy Reid live from the #YesWeCode Hackathon at the Ford STEAM Lab in Detroit, Michigan.

Featured guests include U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Stephen Henderson, Detroit Free Press Editorial Page Editor and co-host of “Detroit Today,” and Van Jones, founder of #YesWeCode. Reid will also look at Sisters Code, a Detroit organization that teaches women of all ages how to code and succeed in science, technology, engineering and math industries.

Additionally, Reid will speak with Hackathon participants and serve as one of the competition’s judges. #YesWeCode’s Detroit Hackathon will provide 100 Detroit middle school students training and computer programming skills to pave the way for high-tech education and careers. Students will present a final project and the concepts they learned to a panel of judges.

“I witnessed firsthand at last year’s My Brother’s Keeper Hackathon that teaching our youth the value of coding enables creativity,” said Reid. “I’m thrilled to be a guest judge to support the students of this city and the #YesWeCode program, which is essential to fostering diversity in the tech industry.”

Launched last year, Ford STEAM Lab is an educational program from the Ford Motor Company Fund designed to spark student passion for technology entrepreneurship and careers in STEM fields.
