Rebuilding The Cornerstone of American Democracy: Leveraging Digital Tools to Reach Today’s Voters


Tuesday, March 22, 2016, 4:00pm to 6:00pm


Ash Center, 124 Mt. Auburn St., Suite 200-North, Cambridge, MA

Part of the Technology and Democracy Workshop Series

Tiana Epps-Johnson, Founder and Executive Director, Center for Technology and Civic Life

Tiana Epps-Johnson will share her experience working on technology instruction and capacity building with the thousands of local government offices responsible for voting. Civic tech is at the frontier of the franchise: from connecting voters to election information to making the voting process more accessible. Participants will apply this new knowledge by rethinking the process of voting from the “user’s” perspective--writing in plain language and designing a website that prioritizes the information that is most pressing to avid, infrequent, and non-voters. 

Please note that space is limited. RSVP is required to participate in this event.

About the Series

The Ash Center’s non-resident Technology and Democracy Fellows will design and lead a series of hands-on workshops for Harvard Kennedy School students, co-sponsored by Tech4Change. Each workshop will help participants develop their “technological intelligence” and learn skills related to understanding, managing, or creating digital technologies with the potential to improve the quality of democratic governance.
