From recent Facebook whistleblower testimony on hate speech to social media surveillance by law enforcement, there is an urgent need for solutions to address Big Tech and its impact on society.

Stanford Professors Rob Reich and Jeremy Weinstein will share insights from their new book, System Error: Where Big Tech Went Wrong and How We Can Reboot. Former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick will discuss his work with the Future of Tech Commission and the group’s recommendations for President Biden’s internet and social media goals. Timothy Shriver, founder of UNITE and chairman of the Special Olympics, will explore how we can better unify to find solutions.

The panel will be moderated by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and founder and editor in chief of The Markup, Julia Angwin.
