What is Sketch City?
Sketch City is a non-profit community of technology advocates and civic hackers. We are based in Houston, Texas.
How you can get involved:
- Join 1500+ people in our civic tech meetup. That's where we post our monthly civic hack nights. They follow a general theme and look like this.
- Join us on Slack. That's where we collaborate on projects.
- Attend the Houston Hackathon on May 14-15, 2016. You do not need to know how to code. It looks like this.
Our advocacy projects:
- A series of participatory budgeting pilot programs with various governments throughout the Houston area.
- A neighborhood-level analysis of broadband access and cost throughout the City of Houston.
- Continued development of the Houston civic hacking community through monthly hack nights and the annual City of Houston Hackathon.
