DC: First Meetup

We are brand new to DC and can't wait to meet all of you! 

The first meetup will center around 2 items: 

1. We will brainstorm ways that we can work together to make a difference, locally or at a national level. This can be through apps, novel dissemination of information, donating tech services, etc. 

2. We will form groups around projects of merit and get to work!

About Code for Democracy:

Code for Democracy brings together engineers, domain experts, and activists to develop projects that support democracy, equality, and fact-based policy. Our focus is on the political process in the US. We currently have 1,000 volunteers across Boston, NYC, and SF working on projects such as ballot access and electoral transparency.

Boston: First Meetup

Boston: First Meetup

Who should join: You should join if the recent political climate has created in you a desire to "do something" and if you feel that a good way for you to do something will involve leveraging technology.

What will we DO: We are brand new, so I expect that the first meetup will center around 2 items: 1. We will brainstorm ways that we can work together to make a difference, locally or at a national level. This can be through webapps, phone apps, novel dissemination of information, donating tech services, etc. 2. We will form groups around projects of merit discussed in step 2 and get to work.

What we are NOT: 1. We are not a debate group. Of course, alignment on issues within the scope of each project will be important for efficacy and unity, but many of us spend many hours learning, debating, and evangelizing already; this group is for taking action. 2. We are not exclusive: Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend and will be treated with respect.
