    Get Involved Today

    Public Knowledge has the pleasure of inviting you to a multifaceted program focused on training and developing the next generation of tech policy experts and public interest advocates that reflects the diversity of voices and experiences in our society.

    Please join us for our monthly Career Breakfast Series. This event is designed specifically for students and recent graduates of color, offering insights into tech policy and public interest careers, and providing a platform for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds. This time you will have the opportunity to have a great conversation with Steven Renderos.

    Steven Renderos (he/him) is the Executive Director of MediaJustice, a national racial justice organization that advances a liberatory vision for media and technology. 

    For the past decade, Steven has led campaigns at MediaJustice that lowered the cost of prison phone calls, secured net neutrality rules, and got Donald Trump off Twitter. Steven is a regular commentator on media, technology, and racial justice, appearing in publications like the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian. Steven was a 2013 Rainbow PUSH Coalition Top Inspirational and Engaged Leader and a 2020 Rockwood Leadership Institute fellow. He was a 2020 advisor for Just Futures Law’s Take Back Tech Fellowship and serves on the boards of Americans for Financial Reform, Media Democracy Fund, and People’s Tech Project.

    Steven is the creator and producer of Bring Receipts, a politics and pop culture podcast that launched in 2021, which he hosts alongside Brandi Collins-Dexter. He’s also the executive producer for Revolutionary Spirits, a 4-part history podcast on the life and martyrdom of Mexican revolutionary leader Francisco Madero. A native of Los Angeles, Steven grew up in an immigrant household at the height of anti-immigrant fervor in California. The propaganda campaign that fueled the passage of Proposition 187 in the mid-90s motivated Steven to seek out a career to challenge media bias and democratize communications for people of color.

    Join us on Friday, June 7 @ 08:30 A.M. ET at The Gathering Spot in Washington, D.C.

    This is a private event. However, if you know someone who would be interested in attending, please email
