Innovation is a Process, Not a Destination
Whether we like it or not, the 2020 campaign is underway. Every four years, large presidential campaigns attract a lot of money and talent. But after the campaign is over, the people brought in to create innovative and cutting-edge technology usually disappear, and with them, the continued evolution of those tools. Instead of building on the innovation sparked by the previous electoral cycle, we lose momentum. We recently wrote a piece with our friends at Higher Ground Labs about why innovation in the political space is so important:
We must use technology to empower people and groups to engage more fully in our democracy — both during election cycles and in between. But only if we prioritize continued investment in innovation — not just technology and tools, but also new ways to organize, mobilize volunteers, tell our stories, and change hearts and minds.
