Tech for the Safety Net

New America

04/11/2019 - 12:00 to 13:30

The economic shifts brought by technology and automation are putting new strains on the social safety net. But done right, technology can also help the safety net -- and all who rely on it -- thrive. Join us for a conversation between Nicolas Colin, author of the new book Hedge, and 2018 New America CA Fellow Rey Faustino. Moderated by New America CA Director Autumn McDonald, our discussion will explore the connections between the tech sector and anti-poverty work, including innovative ways to address poverty amidst the new pressures of a tech-driven economy.
