Civic Technology Volunteer Hackathon!

Seattle Tech4Good is a co-organizer of a fabulous yearly event. Come lend your designerly, project management or technical chops to civic tech projects!


WHY: Tech holds the promise to empower active citizenship and make institutions more accessible, accountable and efficient. Instead it’s been used to subvert American Democracy. It’s time for you to take it personally.

WHAT: A convening of the local civic tech community to focus on connecting people who want to make a difference with local tech-for-good projects that need their help. It’s a chance to get inspired, imagine a better future, and contribute your talent.

WHO: You. Whether you’re a concerned citizen or a technical wizard, you have something to contribute. Projects will need coders, designers, researchers, project managers, subject matter experts, and just ordinary people.

HOW: Bring your laptop, your creativity, and your collaborative spirit to Code Fellows on Saturday, September 22nd. Register your project or create your volunteer profile now on DemocracyLab. On Sunday the 23rd, we’ll have extended access to Code Fellows’ space for teams that want to keep working. Selected projects will have the opportunity to present their work Sunday at the Pacific Science Center’s Curiosity Days: Evolving Cities event.
