Thursday at 11 am keynote speaker is Alisa Chang from NPR’s All Things Considered.

Ailsa Chang is an award-winning journalist who hosts All Things Considered along with Ari Shapiro, Mary Louise Kelly and Juana Summers. She landed in public radio after practicing law for a few years.

Chang is a former Planet Money correspondent, where she got to geek out on the law while covering the underground asylum industry in the largest Chinatown in America, privacy rights in the cell phone age, the government’s doomed fight to stop racist trademarks, and the money laundering case federal agents built against one of President Trump’s top campaign advisers.

Previously, she was a congressional correspondent with NPR’s Washington Desk. She covered battles over healthcare, immigration, gun control, executive branch appointments, and the federal budget.
