We are a Code for America Brigade based in Cleveland, Ohio. Open Cleveland evolved out of the 2014 National Day of Civic Hacking. Open Cleveland is a group of people, first and foremost. We also call ourselves technologists, planners, designers, doers, thinkers, and activists. Every third Wednesday we actively work together to improve the City of Cleveland and all of Northeast Ohio often using technology to support our efforts. By connecting people, organizations, resources, tools, and networks to build for Cleveland we will all thrive.
Open Cleveland is a local chapter of the Code for America Brigade, an international network of people committed to using their voices and hands, in collaboration with local governments, to make their cities and their services for residents better.
Open Cleveland holds its leadership and participants to a Code of Conduct which applies to our meetups, events, and digital forums. Read our Code of Conduct.
