National Day of Civic Hacking

The Code for America community is partnering with Transform911 to evaluate how emergency response systems work around the country. On September 18, 2021 Code for America will host the 9th annual National Day of Civic Hacking, with the theme of Reimagining 911.

We’ll come together to participate in open data, research, and design thinking actions in order to reimagine the 911 emergency response system to be truly human-centered. There will be actions available to leverage different skills, technical and nontechnical. To learn more or register: https://www.codeforamerica.org/national-day-of-civic-hacking/ndoch-2021/
