Public access and participation in the digital age, by and for the people of Hampton Roads, VirginiaA Code for America Brigade
We “use the principles and practices of the digital age to improve how government serves the American public, and how the public improves government, where we live.” – Code for America
We focus on serving our fellow Americans who depend on government services for essential quality of life and basic rights.
We collaborate with government, community foundations, and civic groups throughout Hampton Roads to improve public access and participation. We get passionate about bridging digital divides in government services and improving civic participation through the internet. Learn More…
