Event Details


Democracy works better when everyone participates. However, fifty million Americans aren't even registered to vote. That means the voices of these people are not included in our Democracy. 
 
We need new ways to reach them, help them get registered and to turn them out on election day. The need is urgent and its non-partisan.

We are looking for people with a variety of talents to participate in a special Design Thinking Workshop to innovate new approaches to this tough challenge. Experts from Washington, DC will explain the importance and challenges of voter registration. And then working in small teams with other creative thinkers including digital advertisers, data scientists, developers, academics, political activists and unexpected others to brainstorm new approaches.  You will also learn how Design Thinking is used to tackle today’s problems.

 

Why it matters

"Elections matter. Voting counts". (Obama)
"For this Nation to remain true to its principles, we cannot allow any American's vote to be denied, diluted, or defiled. The right to vote is the crown jewel of American liberties, and we will not see its luster diminished". (Reagan)

 

Voter Participation Center (VPC) is a non-partisan, non-profit voting rights organization based in Washington, DC. This VPC-DemLabs workshop brings together the experience and knowledge of Washington with the creativity and skills of Silicon Valley to tackle the challenge of our times. Please register for just one of the workshops :
San Francisco  Tue,  July 24th  ( 1-5PM)
Palo Alto         Wed, July 25th  (12-5PM)


It’s time to stop yelling at the news and to do something.  Your talent and your participation are important. You may even have the missing piece of the puzzle that politics has been waiting for!
