The 8th annual National Day of Civic Hacking took place on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
Code for America and the Network brought together civic leaders, public servants, designers, coders, and engaged citizens to partner with local government and community groups to tackle some of our toughest challenges. The day of collective action focused on helping those most in need of social safety net services during COVID-19.
Actions for the day
We organized three actions for People Over Paperwork. Want to complete one of these actions with your Brigade, or just learn more? Find links below to each project’s slide deck.
Join a panel of leaders from Code for America, the SF-Marin Food Bank, and the Center for Budget Policy and Priorities discuss the current state of the social safety net as the impacts of COVID-19 continues, approaches to strengthening it for those who need it most from grassroots to government at all levels, and what’s on the horizon.
