Demand U.S. FCC & Congress Expand Broadband and Lifeline Access during COVID-19 Crisis

  As the country’s unemployment rate skyrockets due to the COVID-19 pandemic, American families are struggling to make ends meet. Families should not have to choose between essential internet connection and groceries. Access to the internet should not be a luxury that divides the haves and the have-nots. Latinos, who already disproportionately do not have access to the internet at home, need reliable, affordable access to broadband and other communications services.  That’s why the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is partnering with Access Now, Common Sense, Media Justice, National Digital Inclusion Alliance, Open Technology Institute, Public Knowledge, and Libraries Without Borders to launch a petition urging Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai and Congress to expand access to the internet and the Lifeline program.  Our community urgently needs broadband access to work, learn, and connect online during and in the wake of this pandemic. Join us in this fight by signing our petition and sharing our campaign online and through your networks. 

TAKE ACTION NOW!
