Monday marks the start of the Congressional recess, when many voters across the country will talk with their representatives in person at town hall meetings. I teamed up with Dylan from Development Seed to take the Town Hall Project’s amazing volunteer-compiled data and borrowed some work by our friends at GovTrack to build a congressional district-based town hall event map.
I am so encouraged by the recent upswell of small-d democratic participation, and during this recess it’s so important for people across the political spectrum to get involved – even if their representatives don’t. Living in Washington D.C., I don’t have a representative to meet at a town hall. So, I want to help as many voters as possible go to theirs by putting some of the basic geometries of our democracy to work. What are you going to ask your representative?
