Breaking the Power of Big Tech

Tuesday, September 1, 2020;  2:00-3:30 pm ET

While it was once unthinkable to imagine that policymakers would move to break the power of Big Tech, it is now a question of when and how, not if. 

As the Antitrust Subcommittee prepares its final plan of action, 40 organizations are hosting a conversation on September 1st at 2pm about why breaking up these dominant corporations is key to protecting workers, small businesses, communities, and democracy. 

Hear from the experts and advocates that jump started the movement to take on Big Tech about the road ahead, what we can expect next in the fight, and why there is a growing opportunity to take on corporate power.
