About National Day of Civic Hacking:
National Day of Civic Hacking is a nationwide day of action where developers, government employees, designers, journalists, data scientists, non-profit employees, UX designers, and residents who care about their communities come together to host civic tech events leveraging their skills to help their community. This annual event provides citizens an opportunity to do what is most quintessentially American: roll up our sleeves, get involved, and work together to improve our society.
Please let us know if you just want to be informed or actively hack so we know how many desks we need.
