NHMC Presents on the Digital Divide and Net Neutrality at the Latinx Tech Summit in Austin, Texas

NHMC Policy Counsel, Daiquiri Ryan spoke at the League of United Latin American Citizens’ (LULAC) Latinx Tech Summit on December 1, 2018. This year’s Summit was the first year that LULAC hosted its signature tech event in Austin, Texas. Nearly 150 Latino tech entrepreneurs, tech adjacent employees, and tech policy experts convened to share their stories and tackle major issues related to Latino communities.

Daiquiri presented an overview on what NHMC considers the biggest tech policy issues facing the Latino community today: the Latino digital divide, net neutrality, and privacy.

NHMC is honored to work with a fellow civil rights organization like LULAC. Both of our organizations have a shared goal to collaborate and advocate on behalf of Latinos online.
