About the Brigades

Code for America Brigades are volunteer groups that collaborate with local government and community partners to build new tools that help with local civic issues.

What are Brigades?

We’re a national community of organizers, technologists, and community members putting technology to work for the benefit of our local communities.

Our Brigades meet regularly to build, share and learn about tools to create, support, and serve the public good.

We’re thousands of designers, academic researchers, data journalists, activists, policy wonks, web developers and curious community members who want to make our city more just, equitable, transparent and delightful to live in through data, design and technology.

Come join us!
