  • Code For Connecticut: National Day of Civic Hacking

    Upward Hartford

    National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH) is a nationwide day of action that brings together civic leaders, public servants, designers, coders, and data scientists to partner with our local governments and tackle some of our toughest challenges. Code For Connecticut will participate in NDoCH every year as part of the Code for America Network, and this year, NDoCH is being held on September 21. We’re particularly excited for this year’s event because we will be working on transforming the way government delivers services to those impacted by the criminal justice system. Code For Connecticut will be: - Creating a user-friendly “Know Your Rights” site about criminal record relief - Journey mapping/process mapping the criminal record relief (i.e., expungement, sealing, dismissal, reduction, etc.) process in Connecticut - Creating a services usability scorecard, which evaluates the services available to people seeking criminal record relief (i.e., expungement, sealing, dismissal, reduction, etc.) This year’s NDoCH coincides with National Expungement Week, an effort led by organizations across the country to help people in the process of clearing their criminal records. This is a great opportunity to work with partners who are already doing this important work, and lift up their voices in our community, while being part of an effort to transform the record clearance landscape by expanding, streamlining, and automating the process. Stay tuned to find out how you can participate!
