Crosscut Presents:

News & Brews: Regulating Big Tech

Is it time to break up Amazon? Should we regulate social media monoliths?

Tech industry giants like Facebook and Amazon have incredible power and impact on our lives. As their reach and influence has become more apparent, lawmakers have begun to heed the calls for greater scrutiny, regulation and maybe even breaking them up. Is it time? It is legal?

Join Crosscut and an all-star panel of legal experts, policy advocates and politicians, as we debate these issues together. Complimentary beverages (and food) provided, to ease the tension.

 

Crosscut's Political Reporter Melissa Santos will moderate a panel of guests:

Sally Hubbard, Expert on Antitrust & Tech Platforms; Host of Women Killing It! podcast

Shankar Narayan, Technology and Liberty Project Director, ACLU of Washington

Reuven CarlyleWA Senator

Noah PurcellWA Solicitor General

Jack KirkwoodProfessor of Law at Seattle University

Your ticket includes access to the pre-reception (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM) where you will enjoy complimentary drinks and appetizers. The program will follow at 7:00 PM and run for approximately (1) hour.
