Who we are:
We are NYC's civic technology and open government vanguard. Since 2009, we have been leading elected officials to engage with NYC’s technology community, working on and passing transformative open government legislation, supporting NYC's civic technology startups, and building tools to serve our fellow neighbors.

We are a fiscally sponsored not-for-profit and America’s largest civic technology and open government community.

What we do:

  • We focus on the intersection of civic engagement through technology, and advocate for open and accountable governments.
  • We host weekly meetings to engage with stakeholders and learn from each other, while representing Code for America’s brigade program.

Events and Programs:

The Brigade is our most valuable program. It is you! The Brigade is where NYC’s civic technology community comes together to build solutions to the city’s problems. We are Code for America's NYC Brigade and we are inaugural members of NYC’s CodeCorp.

BetaTalks, HackNights, and Gov Geek Drinks:
We take an active approach to community building. You can find us hosting weekly hack nights, monthly report backs, or kicking back networking the City’s leading technologists.

Open Government Advocacy & Campaigns:
As internal and external advocates for a more effective government, we are are incrementally improving government through changes in policy, the creation of new legislation, and fighting for the future.

Unconferences & Hackathons:
Our signature event is an annual event bringing together all elements of NYC’s civic technology, civic startups, and open government community. We believe there is only one way to build the future, by building it collectively.
