Last Friday, Larry Fellows joined a delegation of Black activists and organizers from the police accountability movement to meet with leaders of the Federal Communications Commission and Congressional Black Caucus about the preservation of net neutrality. Coordinated by the Media Action Grassroots Network and our partners, the delegation discussed the role of media and the Internet to amplify and protect Black voices amid this racial justice crisis.
The internet has become a vital source of information whether it’s news or entertainment, but it is also a lifeline for so many in the U.S. Many families rely on open access to apply for employment, apply for benefits or even connect with other members of their family. It was important to be a voice included in this delegation with so many great leaders on how necessary net neutrality is.
