Volunteer Opportunities: 
http://www.democracylab.org/get_involved DemocracyLab is building a transparent, collaborative, inclusive, civil, and meritocratic community dedicated to using technology to improve society. We use Slack to communicate (make sure to click on the word “Channels” in the left hand navigation after joining). We use Google Drive to store and share documentation of our work. We use Trello to organize our tasks and priorities. We use Github to manage our code (MIT open source license). We use Meetup to organize open, regularly scheduled meetings (in Seattle, WA). You can take a look at our Interactive Prototype to see the current design of our platform. We've launched a MVP version of our product. Take a look here!
