BetaNYC is New York City’s civic tech and open government community. In past year, we’ve hosted 54 events demystifying open data and government, worked with transportation advocates to improve NYPD’s crash data, we’ve gotten the City Council to adopt 21st century rules, and worked with the Council and the Mayor to put the City’s Laws, Charter, and Record online and in a machine readable format.
Next year, we want to diversity our borough partnerships, build a first in class civic hacker free school, and qualify that open government data improves quality of life AND builds a diverse economy.
Join us as we march into the future, together.
We’re looking for 150 people to donate $150 to fund our weekly hacknights. That’s $12.50 a month. Please support us at whatever level you can.
