Mission Statement

We are a welcoming and inclusive volunteer group of developers, designers, data geeks, and citizen activists who use creative technology to solve civic and social problems.


SF Civic Tech was originally founded in 2013 as Code for San Francisco, part of the Code for America Brigade Network. After the sunsetting of the Code for America Brigade Program in 2023, the organization renamed itself to SF Civic Tech in 2024. SF Civic Tech is a member of the Alliance of Civic Technologists.

SF Civic Tech is a group of people, first and foremost. We also call ourselves technologists, planners, designers, doers, thinkers, and activists. Each week, we actively work together to improve the City and County of San Francisco, often using technology to support our efforts. By connecting people, organizations, resources, tools, and networks to build for San Francisco, we will all thrive.

SF Civic Tech is a safe space for experimentation, learning and practicing skills, taking chances, and asking questions, all to affect and encourage positive change. Whenever possible, we proactively reach out to those who are left out, excluded, ignored, or discriminated against. Those people, in our opinion, represent our most desirable source for experiences, knowledge, and thoughts. We fail without their involvement.
