#43 Working HackNight
On January 15, we had a huge gathering of tech workers discussing climate change: how organizations are demonstrating on the streets, and lobbying for legislation that will solve the climate crisis that we are currently in. The Climate Mobilization, Extinction Rebellion, Sunrise Movement, and Justice Democrats are all working towards a clear path to combat the climate crisis we’re facing.
As tech workers, we have got to support the important work being done to fix the climate crisis. Here are things you can do right now:
If you haven’t yet, join the Progressive HackNight slack and join the #climate-manatweeter to organize and work on a twitter bot that will call out journalist that don’t connect the dots of the atrocities they cover to #ClimateBreakdown.
On February 5, Sunrise NYC will have a #GreenNewDeal livestream party that will kickoff the Sunrise Movement national campaign for a Green New Deal.
This Saturday, Xtinction Rebellion will have a national day of action. Join the event here
Next week is a Working HackNight – which means there’ll be no speakers, but we’re going to work on a open-source projects, discuss strategies to help grassroots organizations, and learn from each other.
This HackNight will not have a speaker, so it’s full-on hacking and learning!
Start a new breakout group or meet up with an existing one. Feel free to use the space provided to us by ThoughtWorks NYC. Our directors and organizers will be available throughout the HackNight to provide support, collaborate, or a sounding board for your projects. Help us reserve a space for your group by announcing your breakout group.
