What we're about
Code for Jersey City is the official Code for America (https://www.codeforamerica.org/) brigade for Jersey City, NJ.
As of April, 2018 the core team has been working for several months on restarting the brigade. We signed the Code for America brigade Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in January, 2018. This means we are committed to:
• The Code for America Code of Conduct (https://github.com/codeforamerica/codeofconduct), including the Anti-Harassment Policy.
• The principles and values (https://www.codeforamerica.org/how/values) of Code for America.
• The ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (https://www.acm.org/about-acm/acm-code-of-ethics-and-professional-conduct)
“build with, not for” --Laurenellen McCann (http://laurenellen.com/)
Code for Jersey City is a nonpartisan, civic-tech, volunteer community group that collaborates with local government and community partners. We build new tools that help with local civic issues, advocate for better technology and open government, and provide a space for residents to voice and act on their ideas so that our city can grow for, and by the people.
We use open data, user research and other metrics to visualize trends to support our city. We offer innovative ways to use the web and mobile software in government operations and community outreach for residents to be informed and empowered.
We need everyone to participate! Come join other developers, designers, data geeks, civic leaders, community organizers, and idea-makers and get involved in making a change.
