Ongoing Civic Hacking Nights! Here’s how to get started:

  3. Current Projects 

    • MigraMap:

      • We’re helping comp sci student Guillermo Rojas on his project to enhance MigraMap. Tech & non-tech volunteers needed ASAP to make MigraMap the go-to resource for ICE raids. Questions: @guillermokrh
    • Renters Power Project:

      • This is the winning project from the 2016 [email protected] Hackathon. There’s much work to do to make it a reality. Check out the slideshow and video below to learn more about it.
