Progressive HackNight at ThoughtWorks

April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Progressive HackNight mobilizes tech workers for good.


At Progressive HackNight, we design, plan, and organize around technology that addresses inequity and promotes a society that works for all. We take a strong stance that technology that breeds injustice and oppression should be dismantled. Our bi-weekly hacknights, open source projects, and issue-based campaigns educate and empower advocates and tech workers to create progressive change.


This event is open to technologists, organizers, data enthusiasts, UX/UI designers, creatives, project managers, product managers, coders, etc… of all backgrounds and experience levels.

Breakout Groups


At each HackNight, we have two types of breakout groups:


Learning Groups – groups who want to learn new skills, discuss and strategize on issues, or refine their ideas.


Working Groups – teams who provide opportunities for our community to use their skills by actively building technology and tools.


If you have a breakout group idea, start one by creating an issue in our Project Ideas Github repo, and emailing us at organizers@progressivehacknight.org to let us know if your group will be there!  There are two types of breakout groups: discussion groups and working groups.





In Solidarity,


The Progressive HackNight team
