NHMC also joined more than 80 other groups (including the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, Presente.org, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the Writers Guild of America West and East]) in signing onto Free Press'  letter to the FCC to save the open internet by reclassifying broadband. “Right now there is no one protecting Internet users from ISPs that block or discriminate against online content. Companies like AT&T, Time Warner Cable and Verizon will be able to block or slow down any website, application or service they like. And they’ll be able to create tiered pricing structures with fast lanes for content providers and speakers who can afford the tolls -- and slow lanes for everyone else.”  Read the rest of the letter and see a list of participating organizations here.  Learn more about the open internet at www.nhmc.org/openinternet ]]>

National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a woman-led 501(c)(3) non-profit civil and human rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward the Latino communities.
