Is it time to break up Amazon? Should we regulate social media monoliths?

Tech industry giants like Facebook and Amazon have incredible power and impact on our lives. As their reach and influence has become more apparent, lawmakers have begun to heed the calls for greater scrutiny, regulation and maybe even breaking them up. Is it time? It is legal?

Join Crosscut and an all-star panel of legal experts, policy advocates and politicians, as we debate these issues together. Complimentary cocktails (and food) provided, to ease the tension.

Crosscut's Political Reporter Melissa Santos will moderate a panel of guests:

Sally Hubbard, Expert on Antitrust & Tech Platforms; Host of Women Killing It! podcast

Reuven Carlyle, WA Senator

Noah Purcell, WA Solicitor General

Jack Kirkwood, Professor of Law at Seattle University

Your ticket includes access to the pre-reception (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM) where you will enjoy complimentary drinks and appetizers. The program will follow at 7:00 PM and run for approximately (1) hour.
