Problem Solving for the Common Good
A hackathon hosted by Debug Politics & Startup Policy Lab
December 8-10, 2017 | General Assembly ~ San Francisco
It’s been a year since November 2016… and the challenges facing American democracy are more serious than ever. Debug Politics is back in action for a second year—and together with Startup Policy Lab, we’re hosting a hackathon to again challenge the tech community to take civic action. But this year, we want to think bigger than any single election. This year we ask you to take on the political and the social in partnership with expert peers in civics, social advocacy, and public policy. This year we problem solve for the common good.
Tech + Politics + Society + You 2017 Hackathon brings Debug Politics back to where we started—downtown San Francisco at the Financial District Campus of General Assembly, our Venue Host. Designed as a special edition of Debug Politics’ signature hackathons, this joint event with co-host Startup Policy Lab again promises thought-provoking programming and engaging luminaries to inspire tech+politics enthusiasts focused on transforming civic angst into meaningful action (and sometimes apps).
