Description

2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang is coming to Prairie Lights!


One of the most exciting candidates in the 2020 US Presidential Election, Andrew Yang (D) is looking to bring his experience as a successful tech entrepreneur and innovator to the White House.

In 2011 he founded Venture for America (VFA), and spent 6 years helping create more than 2,500 jobs in cities like Cleveland, Detroit, and Pittsburgh.

While traveling the country for VFA, Andrew realized that artificial intelligence threatens one-third of all jobs, and that we need a vision for a radically different future. In his book, The War on Normal People (April 2018), he explains this crisis, arguing for The Freedom Dividend, a form of universal basic income that would provide every American adult $1,000 per month.

Join Andrew at Prairie Lights to discuss the future of America. Bring your questions!

You can learn more about Andrew's platform here, and check out his features in the New York Times, Huffington Post, and CNBC - or podcasts with Ezra Klein and Sam Harris.

We hope to see you there!
