CypherPhilly
Philly Graph DB and Code for Philly are starting a new initiative called Cypher Philly. The initiative is intended to inspire and equip citizen journalists, data enthusiasts and social activists with the tools and data to do good for the city and citizens of Philadelphia. There are a number of reasons why Philadelphia needs your help from public safety issues to beautifying shared public spaces, transportation updates or even unheard police complaints. Our goal is to harness the untapped potential of OpenDataPhilly.org which has hundreds of datasets that could help inform effective solutions to these problems. Topics range from Arts/Culture/History, Education, Elections/Politics, Transportation, Public Safety, Environment & and much more. With a shared enthusiasm for making an actionable difference we believe you can help us make this initiative possible.
Coders, Data Managers, Journalists: Check out their project page which links all the different ways to get involved.

My Brother's Keeper
My Brother's Keeper was conceived in response to the problem of lopsided inventory levels at donation centers serving Philadelphia's homeless. These centers often have an abundance of a few types of donated goods, while many others are in short supply. This web application will enable such donation centers to inform the community of what items they need by simply selecting the items from a list of their general inventory. If greater specificity is needed, they can add comments for any item.

Septa Rider Experience - Service Design ImprovementsDesign Challenge
How might we improve the signage of the SEPTA subway stations so that riders spend less time walking in the wrong directions, have less trouble finding out where they need to go, and feel less like 🤬and more like 😁or even 🤩?

Solution
Starting with the most high-traffic subway routes (BSL and MFL) we’ll use empathy, observation, graphic design and create posters in order to improve signage, direct riders to where they need to go and affect the greatest volume of riders.
