If you’ve ever wondered about what future role tech has to play in making civic participation more accessible and engaging, this is the event for you.
Hook the Vote and the Texas Civic Ambassador program through the Annette Strauss Institute present Civic Tech: Engagement in the Digital Era.
This is a panel discussion focused on the dynamism of civic participation in a tech-driven electorate. Topics such as the spread of misinformation, the danger of echo chambers, and the ability of social media to mobilize will be discussed by 5 experts in the field of civic technology.
Moderators Jada Fraser and Rosaleen Xiong will be joined by Sarah Ortiz Shields of Austin Tech Alliance, David Edmonson of TechNet, Tom Johnson of UT, Ashley Cheng of Rouser and THE RABBLE podcast, and Seth Collins of US Ignite. We hope to see you there!
