Presentation Parameters

“Together, we can democratize democracy and make it safe again for amateurs.” -Eric Liu
  • We will not accept partisan presentations. We seek to remove labels and political buzzwords from public discourse and to reach a broad cross-section of society which by and large agrees on progressive issues. We define “progressive” as those movements which seek to further economic, environmental, social and racial justice for all.

  • Presentation topics should fit within the concept of “democratizing democracy”–how everyday people can actively participate in representative government to fix socio-economic problems. How do you or your organization use tech activism to return power to the hands of the governed? This article can help you gain a more thorough understanding of ProgCode and what we mean when we use the term “democratizing democracy”.

  • Presentation topics should be aligned with (but do not have to focus on) ProgCode’s mission to reduce or remove the influence of money in politics by supporting the creation of open source tech tools to empower progressive grassroots movements.
