Advancing technology and data in decisions that affect the public.

We are an open, non-profit community of technology advocates and civic hackers:

meetup = hacks, in-person events, real connections
weekly hacks = every Tuesday we get together – newcomers welcome!
github = share code, data, documentation
ideas = browse or submit project ideas
slack = research, organize, chat
facebook = announcements, events, and discussions
contact = reach out to the organizers
