Join us Thursday 7/9 from 5:30-7:00 for an informal discussion about technology and social justice led by Joe Rowe. No signup required.

What's the role of technology in the goals of social justice? Are we really better off? Is technology a tool to widen or shrink the gap between rich and poor? There are inconclusive results about the benefits, and we don’t really know much about the negative impacts of our choices to put computers into our lives and schools. This is a book potluck, so bring a book that you've read regarding the paradoxes of technology. Don't have a book? Print an article. Going offline can be fun!
