Code for Democracy, a group that sprung up in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election in November, is coming to D.C. The previously Boston, NYC and SF-based organization is for engineers and other activists who want to “harness the power of technology to bring about positive change in our society.”

The group’s first local Meetup is scheduled for Monday, March 20 and will be held at Eastern Foundry in Rosslyn. According to event organizers the agenda for the evening includes two main points:

1. We will brainstorm ways that we can work together to make a difference, locally or at a national level. This can be through apps, novel dissemination of information, donating tech services, etc.

2. We will form groups around projects of merit and get to work!

Ready to join up? RSVP here.
