Introducing the inaugural 'Community Action Night' (CAN)!

"... ARE YOU READY FOR IT?!?!...."

For our first Community Action Night (NOTE: Community Action Nights = the new, more inclusive open civic hacknight), we'll be carrying out various tasks to prepare for the imminent Nov. 21 release of the proposed 2018 municipal budget by the City of Savannah. Many of these tasks will involve no tech knowledge whatsoever (i.e. strategy, layout, feedback forms), while some will involve some more advanced skills (data wrangling, d3 visualizations). The goal is to get as much ready to go so that when the budget drops Nov. 21, we can simply drop it in to what we've already built (http://openbudgetsav.org).

Community Action Nights will be a slightly more structured but still informal biweekly meetup geared toward the entire community and not labeled as a 'hacknight' for purposes of inclusivity and welcoming language (though we'll still do some hacking). In addition, CANs will be more focused on action, but still allow new folks to observe.

How to find us:We'll be upstairs at Bull Street Labs/Open Savannah HQ in the main room with the stage.
