Connecting Congress Widget Demo

Here’s a demo of one widget for one member of Congress, as an example of what we can provide media partners (such as WNYC’s terrific Brian Lehrer show) for public dialogue. Free of charge, open-source code, non-profit for civic engagement.

Of course, AskThem has pages and widgets for every member of Congress from the tri-state area – see national map – happy to create more, or build your own JavaScript widget, it takes just a minute.

Contact: david at ppolitics dot org for more info, happy to chat. Go Brian Lehrer’s crowdsourcing community, open to input.
