Description & History

Code for Jersey City (CJC) is a hands-on

 

active local volunteer group that 

 

collaborates with the JC government and 

 

community partners to build new tools 

 

that help with local civic issues. CJC 

 

believes in public sector innovation 

 

(including civic-tech) and strongly supports 

 

digital-government projects (especially 

 

involving open data, open source, and 

 

open government). CJC is a program of 

 

Open JC and an official Code for America 

 

Brigade Chapter.

 

Our volunteers consist of over 375 

 

technologists, data scientists, community 

 

advocates, designers, developers, 

 

journalists, educators, students, 

 

government employees and more from 

 

various corners of Jersey City and our 

 

neighbouring cities representing a 

 

rich diversity in culture, industry, and 

 

experience. In order to build an ecosystem 

 

that values free and open technologies 

 

and processes, we operate in a way that is 

 

inclusive and participatory of all people, and 

 

in agreement with our Code of Conduct.

 

CJC meets regularly on the 2nd and 4th 

 

Tuesday of every month to work on projects 

 

and brainstorm on current civic issues 

 

and activities around Jersey City. CJC 

 

is the largest and leading technology 

 

community in Jersey City as it provides a 

 

great opportunity to both meet and network 

 

with other like-minded members of the 

 

community, in addition to taking action to 

 

improve the city that we live in and share. 

 

CJC is a vibrant and active community that 

 

welcomes anyone interested in technology, 

 

improving quality of life, or simply learning 

 

more about Jersey City to join us at one of 

 

our meetups.
