Keynote speaker Jamie Fox, former New Jersey Transportation Commissioner, was joined by Commissioner on the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Upendra Chivukula, and Sergio Alonso Fernandez de Cordova of the SDG-FUND at the United Nations. To help New Jersey’s leaders – of today and tomorrow – understand this critical issue facing our state.
NLC4 and Progressive Policy Institute Host Discussion on Silicon Valley’s Political Power
If you’re in the Washington, D.C. area, we hope you were able to join PPI and NLC4 as we hosted Greg Ferenstein, the author of The Age of Optimists: A Quantitative Glimpse of How Silicon Valley Will Transform Political Power and Everyday Life.
Ferenstein shows that tech founders both love government and often see its regulations as an impediment to innovation. We will have a thoughtful discussion on this new ideology emerging from Silicon Valley and how it will impact our future.
We’re looking forward to policy discussions and more training for our alumni this year. Be sure to check out the NLC4 events calendar and join us at one of our events!
