Join us and author Katie Wells for a lunchtime discussion for her newest book, Disrupting DC: The Rise of Uber and the Fall of the City. Drawing on interviews with gig workers, policymakers, Uber lobbyists, and community organizers, Disrupting D.C. demonstrates that many share the blame for lowering the nation’s hopes and dreams for what its cities could be. In a sea of broken transit, underemployment, and racial polarization, Uber offered a lifeline. But at what cost?

Lunch will be provided.
