KMUW has put together a series of virtual events—Distance Socials—to help our community stay connected while safely at home. Engage ICT: Democracy on Tap has joined this effort. Digital Democracy on Tap features the same community conversations you're used to, but convened virtually.
Digital Democracy on Tap: Elections During COVID-19
5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9
COVID-19 has impacted all aspects of social life, including how we vote. In partnership with the League of Women Voters, KMUW's Engage ICT will bring together local experts to discuss how the upcoming elections will continue amid the pandemic. The live conversation will be streamed from KMUW's Facebook page and at EngageICT.org. Email your questions in advance to email@example.com.
KMUW's Engage ICT: Democracy on Tap presents monthly community conversations on topics that touch our daily lives. Since January of 2016, we've covered such topics as healthcare, sustainability and climate change, education and public safety. Engage ICT partnered with the Wichita Eagle and Society of Professional Journalists to host a mayoral candidate debate, as well as with 1A Across America to present a discussion on local women in politics that was broadcast nationally by NPR's 1A.
