Tamron Hall

Actor, Producer & Director Chris Evans, Filmmaker & Actor Mark Kassen and Technology Entrepreneur Joe Kiani have spent the past year traveling the country asking lawmakers from nearly every state a variety of questions on topical issues. Presented for the first time at SXSW, the trio will launch a new civic engagement platform called A Starting Point, which creates a clear and bipartisan channel of communication between Americans and their elected leaders.

During a live demo, Evans, Kassen and Kiani will share their stories – from why they created it, the innovation & new tech that drives it, to what surprised them most about the politicians who contributed.
