The National Day of Civic Hacking (NDCH) started in 2013. Its mission is to engage the community in solving civic issues.
The event brings together urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, community organizers and anyone with the passion to make their city better.
They will collaboratively build new solutions using publicly-released data, technology, and design processes to improve our communities and the governments that serve them.
Anyone can participate; you don’t have to be an expert in technology, you just have to care about your neighborhood and community.
On June 6, 2015, thousands of people from across the United States will come together for National Day of Civic Hacking.
The U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Small Business Administration, BusinessUSA and the U.S. Department of Labor have joined forces to host an event in support of the National Day of Civic Hacking in Washington DC.
The goal is to make open data more useful to small business leaders in your local community.
This Saturday, stop by and help support the backbone to the American economy. More details here.

Such a great idea— in workforce, and economic development, it's easy to use data to help small entrepreneurs/businesses get started, but it's definitely not the end of line
