What we're about

Hack for LA is the Los Angeles Code for America Brigade (http://brigade.codeforamerica.org/), a network of civic-minded technologists who contribute their skills toward using the web as a platform for local government and community service.

We bring together civic-minded volunteers to build digital products, programs and services with community partners and local government to address issues in our LA region.

Sign up for our monthly newsletter (https://www.hackforla.org/)for project updates and event announcements.

Join our public Slack workspace (https://www.hackforla.org/slack) to connect with project and Hack Night groups, see our jobs board, and for general discussions.

To get an idea of what we are all about, founder of Code for America, Jennifer Pahlka, talks at TED 2012 about her experiences and views on maintaining a better government through code. (http://www.ted.com/talks/jennifer_pahlka_coding_a_better_government.html)
