National Day of Civic Hacking

The White House led event, June 1-2, aims to unite everyday citizens, coders, hackers and entrepreneurs to build civic solutions leveraging government data.

Referencing Americans’ can-do spirit with Rosie the Riveter imagery, the event is described as an opportunity to advance the principles of transparency, participation and collaboration. “The event will leverage the expertise and entrepreneurial spirit of those outside federal, state and local government to drive meaningful, technology-based solutions for federal, state and local government,” the website reads.
