About Debug Politics

Debug Politics hosts events aimed at converting the tech community's frustration with politics into meaningful action. Let's use our talents as developers, designers, and technologists to find innovative ways to make a real difference.

We’re not pretending that we have all the answers or that we can save the world with a single app, but we do feel that our community can contribute much more to encourage positive change.
