Reboot Democracy brings together innovators in the tech and political spheres, helps them connect with each other, and supports their development of tools that will strengthen our democratic system. Teams will share the projects they are working on, we’ll hear from a diverse group of speakers, and then we’ll open up the mic to anyone who wants to pitch an idea they are excited about before we break into networking.
