The National Day of Civic Hacking is an international event for people to focus on improving their community. Thousands of people from around the world will tackle civically-oriented projects around open data, disaster relief, mapping, safety and justice, economic development, and other topics.

Here in San Francisco, we will be doing a 3-day hackathon organized by Code for San Francisco and SF State. Urbanists, civic hackers, developers, designers, marketers, students, government staff, and passionate residents will join together to collaborate on new solutions for our city.

We invite you to join us: participate in the weekend, pitch a new project, lead an existing challenge, sponsor the event, or partner with us.

Shared Prosperity Agenda + National Day of Civic Hacking

In January 2015, Mayor Lee announced the Shared Prosperity Agenda – offering specific activities that the City will undertake for its citizens in the areas of housing, education, transportation,women’s empowerment, and anti-poverty. The National Day of Civic Hacking is a chance for residents to prototype and test out their own solutions in these same issue areas, offering complementary projects to those being envisioned by the government.
