Looking to get involved? Code Against Trump

Kate Rabinowitz is creating a list of places where your tech skills can “improve American communities and work against Trump's vision of America.”

Not all protests look like this.

Protesting, of the out-in-the-streets, sign-toting kind that has been seen consistently since Donald Trump’s inauguration, is powerful way to express political displeasure. It can also be difficult to sustain. Which is why, as time goes on, many find themselves looking for a way to protest that aligns more smoothly with their personal lifestyles and skill sets.

Sound familiar? Here’s an idea for the devs out there: Code Against Trump.

D.C.’s own Kate Rabinowitz, of DataLensDC, is creating “a list of volunteer-based groups that use data and technology to improve American communities and work against Trump’s vision of America.”

See the list

The list, which is on GitHub, includes organizations like Code for America, DataRefuge, RagTag and more. It’s not an exhaustive list — Rabinowitz is soliciting help in adding names. It is, however, a great place to start. (And it’s similar to this list of places you can volunteer to help support diversity in tech, a list Alisha Ramos started in December.)

And while we’re on the subject of using time and resources and skills to protest the actions of the current administration, don’t forget about this satisfyingly profanity-laden site by local dev Clara Beyer.
