    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.

    Community Gathering Monday March 26th

    Come join your OB tech team (OBIT) for a community gathering on Monday, March 26th from 6pm – 9pm at E5, 33 Harrison Ave. We realize tech sounds boring, and some of us sound geeky. Let us change your mind as we build an evening of play and politics; song and dance; and perhaps a bit of techno-magic. Our goal is to get to know as many of you as possible and also to give you a sense of our political mission. The gathering will feature some Theater of the Oppressed, music, conversation, and a consensus building tool developed by one of our own OBIT members. By the end, we hope we all know each other better and understand something more about the politics of technology and the Internet.

    Please come hang out with us and explore the various ways we understand and actualize the politics of freedom. Food and drink will be provided.

    OBIT Community Gathering March 26th, 6-9pm 33 Harrison Ave.
