“On June 6, 2015, thousands of people from across the United States will come together for National Day of Civic Hacking. The event will bring together urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, community organizers and anyone with the passion to make their city better. They will collaboratively build new solutions using publicly-released data, technology, and design processes to improve our communities and the governments that serve them. Anyone can participate; you don’t have to be an expert in technology, you just have to care about your neighborhood and community.”

It was initiated by designers and developers, government and non-governmental organisation/charity and encouraged people to participate through special events and an online platform. Hack for Change was national in orientation and concerned with neighbourhood & community and participation.

It was launched on 6 June 2015 and ended on 7 June 2015.
