Civic Engagement in the Age of Boycotts with Katie Harbath of Anchor Change

Katie Harbath

(See source for podcast.)

Katie Harbath, Founder, Anchor Change is looking to solve issues at the intersection of democracy and technology. Katie reflects on the role corporations play in driving change, the likely benefit of boycotts by consumers and voters, need for corporations to be authentic and transparent about political and cause related contributions, and how we think about protecting First Amendment rights.

After 10 years at Facebook, most recently as a Public Policy Director, Katie talks about lessons learned about civic engagement, the changing understanding of the value of social media by candidates, and how we mitigate harms coming from social media while focusing on the positive ways social media can be used.
