 FCC, Deliver The Internet We Deserve

On November 20, members of the Media Action Grassroots Network and our allies at Color of Change, Presente.org and Free Press met with FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn to deliver a letter signed by more than 90 racial justice and civil rights organizations.

Our letter and President Obama’s statement join a chorus of more than 4 million people that have submitted comments on this issue at the FCC, with the vast majority favoring net neutrality and reclassification.
