Session Title:  How to End the Influence of Money in Politics

We’ve become accustomed to a world in which politicians regularly vote in favor of special interests and against the opinion of the majority of their constituents. But this is the result of two things that technology will transform – low voter turnout and poorly informed voters. In a future where every citizen can cast an electronic ballot as easily as ordering an Uber, and everyone has immediate access to expert voting guidance from people they trust, it won’t be possible for elected officials to consistently vote against the public interest and remain in office.

Special Message to Attendees from Host Company: Parking: If you're unable to find street parking, there's a parking garage located across the street at 350 Rhode Island St.
