Can Innovation & Entrepreneurs Save Our Elections?

Date TBA

Our democracy has been ravaged by a two-party system that leaves voters apathetic, or forced to choose between the lesser of two evils. Whether you’re concerned about the climate, privacy, inequality, or individual freedoms, solutions seem impossible when they’re caught up in dysfunctional partisan politics. It’s no wonder that a majority of eligible voters, including more than half of Millennials and Gen Z, say the major parties don’t represent them and they’re looking for systemic fixes to repair our election process.

Join us for a frank conversation among community organizers and nonprofit leaders building or advocating for innovative tools for election reform. Learn how you can help change the rules and disrupt the current broken system, creating a brighter future for all!
