Personal Democracy Forum France event: “From Hope to Forward”

BY Personal Democracy Media | Thursday, November 29 2012

Last year, the inaugural PDF France explored the potential of the web to facilitate innovation in the public debate surrounding the French presidential campaigns, viewed through the lens if the 2008 US elections. A year later, and a month after the reelection of Barack Obama, a special event in Paris will explore how the Obama campaign has approached digital campaigning in 2012 with key staff from the campaign. We'll explore the how technology aided collaboration within the campaign, field organizing, and data collection, among other topics.

On December 6th, join us for this Personal Democracy France special event at La Gaite Lyrique with four key players from the OFA campaign:

Teddy Goff, Obama for America Digital director
Catherine Bracy, San Francisco Techfield office manager
Betsy Hoover, Digital organizing Director
Ethan Roeder, Obama for America Data Director

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.
