It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the second conversation of the Dorothy Vaughn Tech Symposium. This event will address the national security implications of audio visual manipulation by examining online voter suppression during the 2016 Presidential Election.
This topic is of the utmost importance as we prepare for the next election cycle. Our panel will discuss how social media platforms were weaponized by the Russian government during the 2016 Presidential Campaign, it’s links to the rise of white supremacy and the need to develop a policy framework for online communication. The panel of experts include:
Tech Policy Analyst and Fellow at Data & Society
Founder of Digital Sisters/Sistas Inc.
Global Fellow at the Kennan Institute
Sociology Professor at Hunter College/CUNY Graduate Center
We look forward to seeing you on June 4, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM in 2103 Rayburn House Office Building. Please contact Nina Archie at Nina.Archie@mail.house.gov to RSVP, or should you have any additional questions.
