Join us for National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH): 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.

For this year's event, we're partnering with ReformGeorgia on transforming the way government delivers services to those impacted by the criminal justice system. We're working on a "Know Your Rights" website for Georgia residents in conjunction with our sister Brigade OpenSavannah.


10:00am - 12:00 noon: Presentations from partners of ReformGeorgia on criminal justice issues
12:00 noon - 1:00pm: Break for lunch
1:00pm - 4:00pm: Code for Atlanta leads a build session on the Know Your Rights site
1:00pm - 4:00pm: ReformGeorgia leads an open workshop for records restriction, reemployment counseling, and voter registration

You're welcome to join both the morning and afternoon sessions, or to just come at 1:00pm to participate in building the Know Your Rights site. Skills needed:

- Research
- Content creation
- Information architecture
