NHMC has joined the Center for Media Justice, Color of Change, 18 Million Rising and Free Press, as part of the Voices Coalition, in crafting a fact sheet explaining why the Federal Communications Commission must urgently move forward to protect consumer privacy on the internet, create competition and lower prices in the cable TV market, and issue guidance to ensure that data caps and zero rating do not harm consumers.
The fact sheet is a response to the FCC considering items that could help benefit all consumers, with particular impacts for low income consumers and consumers of color.
The Voices Coalition represents communities of color in the fight for digital freedom. Its’ core members include the Center for Media Justice, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Color of Change, 18 Million Rising and Free Press.
In October of 2016, NHMC joined a coalition of 76 public interest organizations in asking the FCC to move forward with important consumer initiatives in set-top box reform, broadband privacy, and zero-rating data plans.
