We are Code for San Francisco

As part of the Code for America Brigade Network, we are a welcoming and inclusive volunteer group of developers, designers, data geeks, and citizen activists who use creative technology to solve civic and social problems.

    Bay Area Open Data Day: Census 2020

    Inspiring civic engagement with the 2020 Census through talks, workshops, and more!

    Every year, our civic tech community comes together to celebrate the power of open data for civic good on Open Data Day. But every ten years, we get the chance to celebrate something extra special: the U.S. Census. The Census is the “mother of all open data”: a powerful force in our civic life, and the heart of many civic data projects. But it can only happen through our collective participation.

    On March 7th, the Code for America Brigades of the Bay Area - Code for San Francisco, Open Oakland, and Code for San Jose - will host a full day of open data talks, workshops, and project sessions. We aim to inspire active engagement with Census efforts, showcase the potential of Census data for civic good, provide learning opportunities, and spark new civic tech project ideas. We invite all to participate, regardless of background, identity, skills, and interests - because when it comes to the Census, all of us count.
