The Event

On the heels of our first Citizen Designer Now event in December, and the Citizen Designer Pledge, we’re hosting a second town hall. The goal: To help further spread inspirations and lessons for how each of us can engage with civic causes.

We’ll do that in two ways. First, we’ll host a panel discussion that showcases inspiring figures from the world of civic startups. Then, we’ll ask audience members to share what they’ve learned about how to get engaged—and what causes they’ve found that need our community’s support.

Join us for inspiration, knowledge sharing, and community building!

Moderator
Cliff Kuang, head of product at Fast Company and a steering member of Citizen Design Now!

Panelists
Catherine Vaughan, CEO of Flippable, a startup that mobilizes contributions to tightly contested local races
Sha Hwang, Co-founder of Nava, which creates software that improves how our government serves people
Mollie Ruskin, founding member of the United States Digital Service
Jason Shen, Product Manager at Etsy and participant of Civic Hall Labs
