Big Tech is broken. Suddenly, a wide range of journalists and politicians agree that something has gone horribly wrong with the internet. How can the Left seize this opportunity to advance a radical vision for digital democracy?

To discuss this question, and to celebrate the release of Logic’s third issue, JUSTICE, we invite you to join a panel discussion with:

* Cathy O’Neil—mathematician, data scientist, and author of “Weapons of Math Destruction”

* Trebor Scholz—scholar, activist, and leading proponent of “platform cooperativism”

* Astra Taylor—filmmaker, writer, and author of “The People’s Platform”

* Evan Malmgren—writer, author of an article in Logic’s new issue on municipal broadband

* Moira Weigel—postdoctoral fellow at Harvard, cofounder of Logic, and author of a recent Guardian Long Read on tech worker organizing

Moderated by Ben Tarnoff. Co-sponsored by NYC DSA Tech Action.

Accessibility info: The venue is accessible by elevator. Please let us know if we can provide any further information.
