He lives with his family in New York.
Join Andrew Yang, popular entrepreneur, bestselling author, and political truth-teller, for an intimate conversation where he lays out his bold blueprint for moving beyond the era of institutional failure by transforming our outmoded political and economic systems to be resilient to twenty-first-century problems. Andrew will outline his vision from his new book, Forward, and participate in a lively question and answer session with the audience. [Organizer's descroption]
