A Briefing on What’s at Stake for Immigrant Communities and Communities of Color - Tuesday, March 2

Feb 22, 2010

What is net neutrality? What is broadband access and adoption? Why should your audiences care about these issues? Here are three reasons why: • Do they make international phone calls using the Internet? • Do they purchase consumer goods online? • Do they search for information, jobs or register for schools online? Internet policy questions may seem too removed from the daily lives of ordinary citizens; yet fierce battles over who controls the Internet are being waged around the country, the outcomes of which will affect our quality of living for decades to come. As the business of conducting our lives is increasingly done online, keeping the Internet open and accessible has become a critical concern among policy and law makers, community and media advocates, new media producers, artists and others. Massive efforts by telecommunications companies to impose a restrictive pay-for-play business model that would result in discriminatory access to the Internet have gone virtually unreported outside of the trade media.
