Tech Hackathon/Skillshare, July 11th

We will hold a tech hackathon/skillshare on Saturday, July 11th from 10am to 1pm. It will focus on teaching supporters to use CiviCRM, the blog and our other organizing tools as well as adding functionality to them. If you have skills with CiviCRM, web design or are just interested, join us.

It will be at Encuentro 5, 9A Hamilton Place, Boston near the Park Street MBTA station. Directions are available. We would appreciate if you register in advance, but it isn’t required.

We have several more events coming up:

  • Saturday, July 18th we are joining with the Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending and the Worcester Unemployment Action Group to work on a website that people can use to fight their illegal foreclosure.  It will be at Stone Soup in Worcester.
  • Sunday, August 2nd will be our Pirate Picnic on Georges Island in Boston Harbor.  Email us at if you want to help organize it.
  • August we are organizing a hackathon to come up with a way to easily map the locations of surveillance cameras in Massachusetts.  We are looking at using Open Street View.  If you are interested in helping with it, especially with finding a location for the hackathon, email us at
