TEDxPhilly - Keya Dannenbaum - Democracy is Knowledge and Participation

If we define the fundamental pillars of democratic society as political knowledge and participation, can we really say we live in a democracy? Keya Dannenbaum argues that when it comes to the local level, we are all political "know-nothings" who have fundamentally disengaged with the political process. Dannenbaum appeals to our deepest civic sensibilities in her TEDxPhilly talk to explain why this matters, and why we should reconnect with politics top to bottom - from the national to the neighborhood level.Keya Dannenbaum is the founder of ElectNext, an early-stage tech startup that translates political data into tools that help build a more informed, engaged and effective democracy.https://electnext.comThe 2011 TEDxPhilly conference examined vast interpretations of the theme "The City" on Tuesday, November 8. TEDxPhilly brought together engaging speakers, performers, participants and exhibitors to deconstruct, decipher and explore some of the greatest challenges, innovations, concepts and realities that shape and are shaped by cities and their inhabitants. Philadelphia was the point of departure, but the conversation traveled beyond its borders. The event took place at Temple Performing Arts Center in North Philadelphia. http://www.tedxphilly.com
