Underground Academy

Underground Academy is a partnership between the UCAC and DataWalk that is designed to serve the community through the intersection of justice and technology. The 2023 Graphathon proceeds will benefit Switch, an anti-trafficking organization serving Upstate SC.

Graphathon '23

Underground Academy's Graphathon '23 is a rare opportunity to learn about human trafficking investigations and graph analytics in a practical setting. Participants will be provided real-world leads and cutting-edge software to scrape the internet and find connections that help law enforcement identify victims of human trafficking and their abusers. Come work alongside trafficking survivors, investigators, analysts, and researchers to help make the internet less safe for traffickers.

Event partnerships are now available!

Law enforcement agencies from any location are needed to help route actionable leads generated at this event.

Area organizations or businesses are also needed to sponsor lunches, coffee, and snack breaks.
