August 9th, 6pm @ Civic Hall - 118 West 22nd Street, New York City
In August we teamed up with Civic Hall to host a discussion on how to increase citizen engagement in our democratic system. The innovators behind Hope, g0v, CommonPlace, Defiant, and Action Map shared the projects they are working on, we heard from a diverse group of speakers, and then we opened up the mic to the room to pitch ideas before we broke into networking.

Reboot Democracy Hackathon
December 9-11, @ 500 Startups, San Francisco
The Reboot Democracy Hackathon is a non-partisan call to action for people inspired to use technology to build scalable tools that increase citizen education and participation in government, and transform our political system into one that is truly representative and responsive to its citizens. All are welcome, from engineers, designers, product managers, business-people, marketers, investors, etc.
We host and promote events that help passionate people connect, learn, and create. Check back for hackathons, happy hours, and discussions about the intersection of democracy and technology.
