Join us on June 25th 2019 as BetaNYC reports back from the Code for America Summit, Open Government Partnership and Personal Democracy Forum – an evening of lightning talks from members of NYC’s civic tech community, who will share personal reflections and insights from recent civic tech events in North America.

LIVESTREAMAt the end of May, several notable summits convened. In Oakland, Code for America convened its eighth summit to explore what works and imagine what’s possible using technology and design in government. In Ottawa, the sixth Open Government Partnership Global Summit delivered concrete action items addressing themes of gender and inclusion, civic space, and democratic governance in the digital age. In New York City, the Personal Democracy Forum held an intimate day-long event exploring ways in which we can make tech more ethical, civic, and inclusive. These events are focal points for international communities that intersect civic and public interest technology, service design, and open government.
