NewFounders Conference

October 18, 2017

Join VRL Founder, Erin Vilardi on the MainStage at The NewFounders Conference for anyone that wants to reshape the future of politics in America.

For the first time, innovators and trailblazers on the cutting edge of UX, technology, design, data and electoral politics will converge to discuss and promote critical infrastructure that can vastly transform politics as we know it.

This conference will be examining how to build on innovations, rather than throwing them out every political cycle, how to challenge the idea of top-down organization, how to help activists build change, how to re-connect people and politics with simple tools, how to use and share data among races, and how to enable new leaders to run the best campaigns they can and win. We will also be showcasing game-changing tools and testing in the areas of Activism, Voting, Elections and Campaigns.

Featuring leaders from organizations such as Indivisible, MoveOn, Women’s March, Swingleft, Sister Districts, DemLabs, Flippable, It Starts Today, VoteRunLead, Runforsomething, SheShouldRun, Wall-of- Us, RockTheVote, Truman Project, 5calls and many more. Not only will a new generation of leaders showcase new tools and systems for a better political infrastructure, but the conference will unveil a way for activists to directly engage in teams based on their skill set.

Don’t miss a visionary look at the future, from the builders of the future. Register Now!
