Austin Jr., Deputy Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs, Justice, and Opportunity, Domestic Policy Council, White House; R. David Edelman, Special Assistant to the President for Economic and Technology Policy, National Economic Council; and Nicole Wong, former Deputy U.S Chief Technology Officer for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
Tickets are free, but the event was booked solid 3 hours after it was announced. However, you're encouraged to show up, as there will be a limited number of seats on the door, available 20 minutes before showtime (5:10pm).
