What we're about

Code for DC brings together volunteers putting technology to work in service of civic and social issues in the DC community.

Our volunteers include software developers, designers, product managers, data geeks, activists, and other community members. All are welcome to participate, and we seek to be a diverse and inclusive space.

We partner with both community organizations and government agencies. Some of our work is specific to DC proper, while other work relates to the entire region.

Our types of project work include: building websites and web apps, analyzing data, running educational workshops, designing materials, and more. We usually meet twice a month, with additional project work happening between meetings.

Code for DC is part of the larger field of civic technology (https://medium.com/tradecraft-traction/navigating-the-field-of-civic-tech-c1f9670c8f69), and is a member of the Code for America brigade network (https://brigade.codeforamerica.org/), which consists of over 80 similar organizations in cities across the country.
