We are technologists, developers, designers, thinkers, entrepreneurs, tinkerers, and makers – all ordinary folks just doing our part.
We are part community, part organization, part business but we are mostly a group of like-minded folks working to make a difference.
We celebrate what works and work to fix what doesn’t driven by an underlying belief that community makes the world possible.
As Civic Technologists we see a massive disconnect between citizens and government. The resulting us versus them mind-set undermines possibility and limits opportunity. We are focused on bridging this divide by using technology to build community, increase civic engagement, and ultimately better connect citizens with government. We believe it is easy to see the ultimate impact civic technology can have when you view it in three steps; give citizens transparency, give citizens a voice, then give citizens ownership.
