We'll explore the how technology aided collaboration within the campaign, field organizing, and data collection, among other topics.

Find out more and register to attend here.

For the many of us unable to make it to Paris, a video archive will be available in the days following the event.

Update as of Dec 3 - this event is now SOLD OUT.
