Meeting Minutes

General Announcements

The National Day of Civic Hacking is upon us! Code for America is putting a lot of resources behind making this a brigade-wide event of collective action. They’ve provided resources to help brigades towards that goal:

October event- Registration for the Code for America Brigade Conference is now open!

  • Link to register is here. Link for comped tickets is here.

  • Who wants to go?

From CfA itself:

Remember, National Day (Sept 21), coincides with National Expungement Week (N.E.W), where local and national groups in the criminal justice space are organizing more than 35 events across the country. Most of these events overlap with Brigade cities. Importantly, the tactics selected by Brigade Leaders are not dependent on whether or not there is a N.E.W. event in your city. Check out the toolkit for more info.

If you would like to lead the CfB NDoCH effort this year, talk to Captain Brandon Minor at brandon ~ at ~ (or on Slack, or just at a meeting!).
