Communication Unbreakdown

Communication unBreakdown is focused on using technology and data science to help community organizers reach specific populations for an empathy-based citizen engagement program known as “Deep Canvassing.”

Leveraging a close relationship with People’s Action, voter demographic data, and responses from former and active Deep Canvass campaigns, we apply supervised machine learning and reinforcement learning techniques for our MVP, “Dynamic and Responsive Targeting System,” or DARTS, to find undecided voters for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, and subsequently, the Georgia Senate runoff.

The MVP was rolled out on October 20 for People's Action.
