2020 Vision: Picturing Real Democracy with guest speaker, Lawrence Lessi
Organizer:Fix Democracy First
Join Fix Democracy First for 2020 Vision: Picturing Real Democracy with special guest speaker, Lawrence Lessig. Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, and the founder of Equal Citizens. Cited by The New Yorker as "the most important thinker on intellectual property in the Internet era," Lessig has focused much of his career on law and technology, especially as it affects copyright. His current work addresses "institutional corruption" — relationships which, while legal, weaken public trust in an institution — especially as that affects democracy.
