Join us for lunch and a demo of Knowledge As Power (KAP), a new online legislation tracking service based in Washington State. KAP is a 501(c)3 organization providing non-partisan legislative information free to individuals. Their services are quickly gearing up to expand to other states, such as California.
Knowledge As Power's executive director, Sarah Schacht, will give a brief overview of the challenges to participation facing citizens and organizations, and some surprising reasons why email is killing civic participation in the legislative process.
A demo of Knowledge As Power will be shared with the group. You'll be the first to see KAP in action, viewing its robust set of tools and unusual structure geared to help citizens and legislators work more effectively together.
Please RSVP prior to the event by clicking the link below (we want to make sure we have food and a seat for you). To cover our costs, a tax-deductible donation of $5 can be made online while RSVP-ing, or can be paid at the door. Lunch included.
