At CMJ, we believe the power to communicate should belong to everyone. In today’s world fair, affordable and open access to the Internet is a fundamental human right and an issue of economic and social justice. In tomorrow’s, when young people of color, rural communities and migrants make up more than half the nation’s population, this right will be more than half our fighting chance to thrive in a new economy.

As my coworker amalia deloney says, “this isn’t just a fight about bits and bytes, it’s about people and our ability to communicate and uplift our communities.”
