What we're about
The Civic Data Alliance (CDA) is Louisville’s Civic Tech org and we are focused on advocating for inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, openness, transparency and accountability in government, civic tech and open data. #Techquity squad. We have come to #HackTheVille.
Civic Data Alliance is interested in ethically liberating, improving, gathering, defining, and reporting on public data and the state of civic tech, while fostering an inclusive and diverse civic tech community.
We STRONGLY believe that our government should uphold and advocate for ethical principles regarding Open Data and be accountable for their Open Data practices, including the ethical collection, implementation and sharing of The People’s data.
CDA is Louisville's force for liberating, improving, gathering, defining, and reporting on public data.
We help coordinate volunteers, push open data and open gov policy, host meetups and hackathons, hosting and formatting open data, and provide civic tech-oriented knowledge sharing for local citizens.
