Needs a location

**RSVP on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2021-national-day-of-civic-hacking-open-project-workday-tickets-162935046109

Join us online on September 18th for the National Day of Civic Hacking! It’s a chance to get inspired, imagine a better future, and contribute your talent to projects that need your help.

Open Seattle, Code for PDX, Open Eugene, and DemocracyLab are collaborating to create this virtual hackathon event focused on helping tech-for-good projects make incremental progress toward their long-term goals. Projects will need coders, designers, researchers, project managers, subject matter experts, test users, and just ordinary people. Bring your creativity, your collaborative spirit, and a smile to share.

Check out the participating projects on https://www.democracylab.org/events/ndoch-2021, and feel free to reach out to project leaders now to start preparing for the event.

This hackathon will continue the momentum from our previous 18 events. Check out the stories on our blog to get a sense of what to expect.
