About the Movement
Learn more about how the idea for Tech(nically Politics) came to fruition, the youth behind the movement, and why it is important to share teen digital stories in order to push forth legislation.
Our Creation Story
While chatting at a youth digital advocacy meeting, Aliza Kopans and Emma Lembke discussed their joint frustration over the inability for members of Gen Z, users at the heart of The Social Dilemma, to assist in pushing forth legislative regulation.
Aliza and Emma merged their passion for digital advocacy and youth storytelling to create Tech(nically) Politics.
Once collected, teen digital testimonials will be converted into episodic videos and distributed around digital wellness and legislative communities.
Join Aliza and Emma as they unwind the portrayal of teens as passive victims of a social media driven society and replace it with an image of a resilient Generation unwilling to accept the status quo and ready to usher in change.
