Code For Sacramento, a brigade of Code for America, is a group of community organizers, developers, and designers that are putting technology to work in service of our local communities. We focus on building civic oriented open source software (see our GitHub page https://github.com/code4sac). We believe that government can work, for the people, by the people, in the digital age, if we all help.
