PRESS RELEASE: Call for COVID-19 Legislation to Support Phone and Internet Access for All


“Before this pandemic, Latinx families were one of the least likely demographics to have internet access at home,” said Brenda V. Castillo, president and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC). “As unemployment rises, our communities face a choice between making ends meet and staying connected. Access to communications isn’t a luxury — especially not amid a pandemic. NHMC, our allies and over 100,000 signatories urge Congress to act now to create a broadband subsidy through underutilized programs like Lifeline, and to connect millions of families today.”   READ PRESS RELEASE HERE

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.
