Join Code for Miami for the 6th annual National Day of Civic Hacking, and help us #HackForChange!

Government works best when it’s government by the People. On August 11th, join Code for Miami and the Code for America Brigades as we host National Day of Civic Hacking & Unconf–a nationwide day of action.

Miami’s own Urban Impact Lab, a company dedicated to helping shape and inspire citizen-driven cities will be giving a civics 101 training, something necessary for anyone trying to get involved and make a difference in their community.

During this event we will hear from local civic organizations making a huge impact like Transit Alliance Miami and The Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge, VolunteerCleanup.Org, The Underline and more. Participants will get a chance to interact and work with leaders of these groups and work on challenges with the help of the experts.

Everyone -- developers, volunteers, designers, and civic-minded folks will have a chance to learn about how these groups got their start, what challenges they face, and how they use data and technology to answer to the social-problems they're working towards helping to solve.
