Welcome to our Online Action Center, where the civil rights leaders of tomorrow can take quick and effective action on the most urgent communications rights issues of today.

Covering Race

People of color continue to be underrepresented and misrepresented in media. This media distortion feeds hate crimes, social exclusion, and discriminatory policies. We need fair and accurate representation.

Take Action

Open and Affordable Internet

The Open Internet guarantees that communities seldomly heard from in our media system have a voice online. From #BlackLivesMatter to #Not1More, the Internet is a vital tool to organize for justice. We must stop corporations from limiting our right to communicate.

Take Action

Prison Phone Justice

Over 2 million families in the U.S. can’t afford to stay in regular contact with their incarcerated loved ones. Decisions on the cost to communicate in and out of prison and jails should prioritize the most affordable rate for families.

Take Action

High-Tech Surveillance

Police are rapidly adopting surveillance technologies – from body cameras to Stingray cell phone interceptors – without our knowledge or consent. We need civil rights protections as surveillance goes digital.

Take Action

Media Ownership

As more TV and radio stations move into fewer corporate hands, our voices, perspectives, and stories are left out. Media mergers between giant corporations should be opposed while efforts to build community-owned media and more diverse voices on the airwaves and online should be fully supported.

Take Action

E-Carceration

The U.S. maintains the largest prison system in the world. Technology is being developed to reduce the prison population through devices like electronic monitors and risk assessment software. We must ensure these technologies don’t replicate the racial bias already inherent in the criminal justice system.
