What we're about

Code for DC is the DC Chapter of the Code for America Brigades. We bring together community members and subject matter experts with data enthusiasts and techies to help make a better DC for all of its residents.

A few examples: we’ve partnered with non-profits to build a client intake system and create a comprehensive database of affordable housing data. We work with the city to control the rat problem and connect case workers to the right programs for their clients. We open data and help solve city issues.

Come help us build more!

Day of Service - Save the Date

Social Tables

Save the Date! More info coming soon. What is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Why is it a "Day of Service?" Legislation signed in 1983 marked the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a federal holiday. In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that leads service and volunteering, with leading this effort. Each year, on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is observed as a "day on, not a day off." MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community." https://www.nationalservice.gov/serve-your-community/mlk-day-service
