Over 50 Meetups participating in National Day of Civic Hacking

One of the best things about Meetup is that when people are organized, they’re powerful enough to make a difference.  This Saturday, Meetups all over the country will work to make their communities stronger by participating in the National Day of Civic Hacking. At these hackathons, people partner with local government to come up with technical solutions to our most pressing problems.

Code For America is responsible for planning the National Day of Civic Hacking. And they’re also one of Meetup’s beloved chapter organizations, using the Meetup platform as one of the ways they organize a network of people dedicated to making government services simple, effective, and easy to use.

There are over 50 civic hacking Meetups scheduled – everywhere from Nashville, Tennesee to Witchita, Kansas to Tuscon, Arizona, and of course Silicon Valley and New York City, too.

There’s still time to RSVP and get in on the action.  Find a participating Meetup near you.
