An experience dedicated to fighting racial injustice and elevating the need for greater levels of equality, equity, diversity and inclusion within tech and blockchain. Listen. Learn. Give. We will start with a quick intro of our panelists and a summary of the charity we will be fundraising for. After the intro we will begin the panel discussion where we will ask a range of questions on the topics of racial injustice, opportunities for the black and minority communities, equality, and best practices going forward. As the panel talk ends we will have a presentation on black-owned businesses and resources as well as a brief technical demonstration of GUAP Coin. At the end, we will open it up to audience questions.
Wednesday, July 1, 2020 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM EDT
Basic income is often dismissed—and promoted—as a utopian idea. Is this a good thing? Can it be useful to strive toward an ideal society? When can such idealism get in the way of human prosperity? Can idealism ever be harmful? For optional reading/listening this week, we have a 2019 Ezra Klein interview with Rutger Bregman entitled, “The case for a universal basic income, open borders, and a 15-hour workweek”
