National Day of Civic Hacking
On September 21st 2019, Code for America Brigades hosted the 7th-annual National Day of Civic Hacking. Organizers hosted 46 events across the country, with over 1000 people showing up to make their local governments work better. This year’s events focused on the criminal justice system and the record clearance process.
In partnership with National Expungement Week, Brigades teamed up with in-person expungement clinics and other criminal justice experts to join the national movement of advocates, lawyers, and those directly impacted by the criminal justice system to help to remove barriers and create pathways to opportunity.
