Technology and Direct Democracy


TONIGHT: Technology & Direct Democracy

 from www.occupyboston.org

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.
“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”
