Let's Build Civic Tech to Scale Democracy for a Better Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

I'm planning to outline some of the major challenges facing our political system (especially as they pertain to citizen engagement, empowerment, and faith in the process), suggest some ways that civic applications (largely made possible by open data) are beginning to address these challenges (somewhat of a quick survey of the field), and then close with a call to action.
