If you weren’t there and want to see Corey's recent Ignite talk, it’s now posted
There’s a good chance that you’ll see a dojo4 family member's face in at least one of the slides!
Also, another presenter that night, Becky Boone, is now facing calls for her dismissal from working with the City of Boulder based on the fact that she said ‘fuck’ a handful of times in her talk.
She is working with the City of Boulder through a partnership with Code for America, and was calling for more civic engagement from Boulder’s under-represented citizens.
Watch her talk: Why you should care about your local government.
If you want to support Code for America's work to promote more representative civic participation in Boulder's government, please email: Council@BoulderColorado.gov, brautigamj@BoulderColorado.gov, HousingCommittee@BoulderColorado.gov today to express your opinion and/or support for Becky Boone and Code for America.
