IBM News featured a team of developers that met at Pace University in "Call for Code Names Winner of 2020 Global Challenge and Announces New Initiative to Combat Racial Injustice"

Call for Code founding partner IBM (NYSE: IBM) and its creator, David Clark Cause, announced the winner of the 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge.
