Civic Hacker's big, hairy, audacious mission is to use software, policy, and data to empower activists and engineer liberation. The problem set spans multiple fields of study and lived experiences. The specific needs of oppressed groups usually range from allyship between privileged groups and vulnerable communities to sustainable opportunities to make policy-level changes.
Civic Hacker develops technology for purpose-driven organizations like your favorite community groups and social enterprises.
Coding camps in the Hood
We had fun partnering with the Nashville Public Library's NPL Studio to do rapid-fire coding camps for Nashville grade school students. So much fun was had, and more is planned:
- Reflections of Teaching My First Coding Camp
- Empowering the Next Generation with Python to Drive Social Impact
Open Source Updates
In addition to major updates to our OSS, we also made a number of contributions toward new projects and useful tools.
