Technology and Direct Democracy

Friday June 22 7pm-9pm at E5 (5th floor, 33 Harrison Ave, Boston, MA)

Facilitated by OBIT and Jeremy Stark

OBIT is proud to present a consensus building tool focused on
accessing direct democracy and using technology to influence political
outcomes at the state and federal levels.

While many carry beliefs that electoral politics are tainted by
corrupt practices and big money Super PACS, there are others who still
believe that it is important that voters leverage their power through
actively challenging their elected officials to speak for the people

On June 22 we will look at the various ways that technology is being
used to impact true democratic practices and get more people involved
in the drafting and revision of proposed legislation.

Join us for an invigorating discussion about the roles of electoral
politics and the promotion of tools that facilitate more direct
involvement in voting and challenging our representatives to speak and
act for the people and not the profiteering corporations and lobbying
organizations such as ALEC.

We are meeting at E5 on Friday June 22 from 7pm-9pm and the community
is invited to participate in sharing thoughts, opinions and
frustrations about the state of electoral politics and search for some
viable solutions.
