Dawn McDougall (Administrator) Help make DemHack2016 the best Code for Philly hackathon yet

We like to make hackathons be about more than code and about more than products. With a new mayor and new priorities, a presidential primary and Democratic National Convention, a mess of new councilpersons, and more than a few groups abuzz about millenials in public office, there hasn’t been a better, or more important time, to be a civic hacker and improve Philly democracy. Read this post about how you can contribute to hacking democracy whether it’s with code or ideas. Join us 3/18-3/20!
