Please join myself, Radical Action Design,Â Progressive Technology Project,Â May First / People LinkÂ and other progressive and social justice movement technologists for a specialÂ Technology and RevolutionÂ mini-convergence, the 20th convergence of this kind this year,Â at ThoughtWorks -Â Monday, November 13 from 6- 9 pmÂ in NYC.
Tools have an important role in our movement – and our role as techies in figuring out the design and training components is critical. However, we also need to think as organizers, and begin addressing the bigger role technology plays in shaping both society and our movements.
- How can our movements go beyond the defensive?
- What role does technology play in building such a strategy?
- Can we succeed without having more control over technology’s role in society?
- Should technology for liberation play a more central role in our movements?
Where: ThoughtWorks,Â 99 Madison Ave, 15th Floor, New York
When:Â Monday, November 13, 6 – 9:00 pm
