Learning how we make change

Anil Dash

D&S advisor Anil Dash discusses how to make change with tech.

On Monday, I’ll be leading a conversation at the White House’s South by South Lawn festival. We’ll be talking with three people who are both extraordinary and strikingly ordinary: Brittany Packnett, the Vice President of National Community Alliances at Teach For America and a co-founder of Campaign Zero; Carmen Rojas, PhD, the CEO of The Workers Lab; and Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry.

They’re three people from wildly different backgrounds, each working on a spate of complex issues. But what they have in common is that they rejected cynicism, they saw that they could have a role in leading change, and they’ve worked to make it happen. In our discussion, we’ll find out how they took that leap, and maybe learn how each of us can focus on the issues we care about and maybe even think about how we can “change the world”.
