The Center For Tech And Civic Life Founder Tiana Epps-Johnson Has Plans To Restore Trust In Our Democracy

Voters can look forward to a more refined and just democratic system thanks to an audacious idea from a Black woman founder. Thanks to TED, in 2018, The Audacious Project was born as an initiative to support changemakers that are lighting a path toward a better future. According to the official website, over $900 million has been distributed to nine projects over the course of a year to bold leaders and philanthropic organizations who understand the value of gathering large dollars to create long-term changes. Among the recipients is Tiana Epps-Johnson, a co-founder and executive director of the Center for Tech and Civic Life. In April, Johnson shared during TED 2022: A New Era, that $80 million will be distributed over five years to various election departments throughout the United States to restore trust in our democracy is accessible and to support elected officials.
