Description

Tl;dr Code for Tulsa is organizing an Open Government/Civic Hacking Happy Hour July 22nd from 7-10pm for all civic hackers in and around the greater D.C. area and all attendees of the July 23rd Champions of Change event at the White House. Mozilla is sponsoring with some great food and beverages and the cool kids at canvas.co coworking are letting us use their awesome space.

Event Update: We are currently working on an additional sponsor and adding some more capacity please add yourself to the waitlist and we will notify you when more tickets are available.

Background:

On Tuesday, July23rd, some amazing folks are being honored for their roles in the Open Government and Civic Hacking movements at a Champions of Change event at the White House.

Code for Tulsa is honored that our OpenFEMA Urban Search & Rescue project from the National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH)was selected to participate in these festivities.

Code for Tulsa also knows that:

  1. There are more people doing awesome things in the open government/civic hacking space than could ever be recognized at the Champions of Change event.
  2. Some of the best connections/opportunities come out of informal events where people can relax and blow off a little steam.

So we decided to host a happy hour that would include open government/civic hacking folks in and around the greater DC area and give all the Champions of Change attendees a chance to blow off a little steam the night before the big day.

Our vision turned into reality when our friends over at Mozilla, who are big supporters of open government/civic hacking, offered to sponsor it. So with the generous support of Mozilla, we are planning to have an assortment of tasty food, some local craft beers and a few other cold beverages to get the conversation started.

The final piece fell into place when the cool kids at canvas.co generously donated their awesome space to host the event.

Are you part of the open government/civic hacking movement and can or will you be anywhere near Downtown Washington D.C. on July 22nd?

Or are you attending the Champions of Change event at the White House on July 23rd?

Then we hope you come by and say hi.
