The Slow Lane Goes Live

How do you cap off an incredible issue? You take it live — The Commons Live! The event, which took place on Wednesday, January 27, 2021, brought together:

  • Sascha Haselmayer, a New America Public Interest Technology fellow and founder and CEO of government procurement firm Citymart
  • Eric Dawson, founder and CEO of Peace First, an online incubator for youth-led social change
  • Sonya Passi, the founder and CEO of FreeFrom
  • Karen Bannan, editor-in-chief, The Commons

Their 90-minute discussion touched on a wide variety of topics, all related to the idea of the slow lane, the fact that technology isn’t a must when it comes to social innovation and helping people have better lives.
