THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AT THE 2016 CIVIC TECH CHALLENGE!
The 2016 Civic Tech Challenge brought together passionate students, creative technologists, and dozens of volunteers and corporate partners to celebrate the belief that we actually can make politics work. That if young people partner with technology to get active in political advocacy, the result will be real progress on even the most terrifying societal problems.
Check out the innovations created at the 2016 Greater Boston Civic Tech Challenge:
