Re3 StoryHack

New American Leaders Project was recently selected to participate in Re3 StoryHack. We helped two teams of hackers write, visualize, code, and share our story. Their websites offer background on the current state of representation, and aim to shift national perspective on the need for descriptive democracy in the United States.

If the interests of elected officials don't seem to reflect our own interests, how better to change that than to run for local office yourself? This humorous video drives home this point, and a toolkit helps anyone get started on a public campaign.

Scroll through the diversity visualization to see the change we need to make so our government truly reflects us.
