COVID & Equity
A Nationwide Hackathon Series to Support Recovery From COVID-19

COVID & Equity brings together designers, developers, and local government leaders who are interested in working on solutions to equitably support the public's recovery from COVID-19. Through a newly formed collaborative with the National League of Cities, Code for America, and many others, COVID & Equity is a series of events modeling a human-centered design process. COVID & Equity will culminate with an online hackathon at the NLC City Summit to develop useful solutions to enable governments to equitably and efficiently respond to their new reality post-COVID-19.

Government leaders will provide challenges in their community and connect with civic developers. Together, we will build connected communities to solve the rapidly changing needs caused by COVID-19 and increase focus on equity in our cities.
