HACK Baltimore is the first city-wide tech movement that teams up community advocates, non-profits, technologists and city residents to design “sustainable” solutions for the challenges impacting Baltimore.

We have long recognized America’s deepening inequality in Housing, Education, Public Safety, Workforce Development, Health & Wellness, and Transportation. HACK BALTIMORE suggests that, “the heroes we have been waiting for are on the ground doing the work.”

Join this Social Innovation movement! You are the experts in the room. You recognize the challenges in your community and you use your resources to create the change that is needed. Let’s team up! HACK Baltimore is calling all civic hackers to unite! Be the solution.

#CivicHackersUnite

Civic hacking isn’t a talent, it’s a mindset. A civic hacker is a person who recognizes a challenge in their community and uses what they have tocreate what is needed.

Let’s Talk!

Check out Dionne Joyner-Weems, CEO of The AudaCITY Group, and Delali Dzirasa, CEO of Fearless as they spotlight civic hackers who are rolling up their sleeves to reimagine Baltimore.

Are you a civic hacker or do you know a Baltimore “doer” in your community that should be highlighted?

Baltimore we need your help!

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Hack Baltimore has started forming“rapid response” teams to collaborate with residents, city agencies and community-led organizations to help come up with tech solutions for Baltimore. To continue assisting the city, we need you!

Hack Baltimore seeks to develop teams that will assist in the design, build, and deployment of usable and sustainable technical solutions.

You are the Civic Hacker that we need! We are looking for engaged citizens from every background. Please proceed to “Indicate Interest,” tell us about yourself and review the FAQ section. If you have further questions about how you can get involved, please add them to the bottom of the form or email contact@hackbaltimore.io.

The hope is that we can quickly begin to engage the community #CivicHackersUnite and develop prototypes that we can start to build.

You don’t have to be a techie to be a Civic Hacker, we need your skills!

Frequently asked questions about Hack Baltimore

So I’ve signed up, now what?

Join the slack channels and keep up to date with what we’re doing. We’ll reach out to you the second we’ve discovered your skills match the needs of the Challenge.

Do I get to choose what challenge I’ll be working on?

We’ll do our best to give you details about the challenge we’re working on so you can assess your interest level. HACK BALTIMORE’s capacity to run multiple challenges at a time will evolve as it grows to have lots to choose from, for now as we’re starting up it’s a limited number due to capacity.

Will I be working alone or with a team?

You will be working with a team and HACK BALTIMORE will help you and your team form, storm and norm (this is for the DUBS long process only)

Where do we communicate?

Join the Baltimore Tech Slack at https://slack.baltimoretech.org and jump in the #hackbmore-swat-team channel.

When will my challenge start?

We email you with all the details when we have one that matches your skills! This email will include things like start date, estimated time requirements and challenge duration.

I’ve signed up but I am no longer able to participate, what should I do?

Send an email to contact@hackbaltimore.io and ask to be removed, and subscribe to the HACK BALTIMORE mailing list through the website. We highly recommend staying informed because this is a movement.

How do I know if I’m skilled enough to work on a challenge?

Be sure to include links to your past work and/or LinkedIn/resume to help us help you feel confident that you have the skills that match the needs of the Challenge.

Baltimore is a unique and vibrant city, and though there are many reasons why we’re called “Charm City”, we tend to make the news for our flaws rather than our strengths. And hackathons are a great way to engage the broader community to explore technology as a way to help solve them.
