#HackForLA connects activism, design, tech, entrepreneurship, policy to tackle the LA region’s biggest civic challenges
#HackForLA is active on #Slack and meets regularly at Civic Hack Nights. Participating in #HackForLA is a great creative outlet for community members that want to solve community challenges in a non-partisan way. Unlike many (maybe even most) nonprofit organizations, #HackForLA challenges people to volunteer their skills by finding ways to help move projects forward and deemphasizes donations.
Hack for LA brings coders, designers, entrepreneurs, students, government agencies, activists, and other civically engaged individuals together to solve the LA region’s biggest civic challenges.
Hack for LA is the official Los Angeles chapter of Code for America, a national nonprofit that believes government can work for the people, by the people, in the 21st century. At our weekly Civic Hack Nights, we organize groups of volunteers to build technology addressing the LA region’s biggest civic issues. We welcome technologists, government officials, designers, students, activists, entrepreneurs and community members to join us and collaboratively create a better Los Angeles.
