Who We Are

Local Civic Innovators and Creative Problem-Solvers

We are volunteers committed to working with the City of Newark. We’re here to help and eager to learn from professional public servants. And while we’re advocates for open government (we can’t build apps without open data!), we’re non-partisan and public-minded.

We're a group of civic-minded programmers, coders, designers, and extraordinary citizens. We work in partnership with government, non-profit, and technical partners to deploy technology to improve quality of life for all residents and increase citizen engagement with civic issues.

Core Team

Code for Newark is led by a volunteer Core Team that organizes events, manages strategic partnerships, and ensures fluid communication among cross-functional project teams.
