Voices for Internet Freedom Hosts a Digital Town Hall for Commissioner Clyburn

On May 8, 2018, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) along with its Voices for Internet Freedom partner organizations, hosted a virtual town hall for departing Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon Clyburn. During the town hall, Commissioner Clyburn spoke with Joe Torres (Free Press), Carmen Scurato (NHMC), Brandi Collins (Color Of Change), Erin Shields (Center for Media Justice), and Laura Li (18 Million Rising). Topics covered included media ownership diversity, consolidation of the media, Lifeline, Net Neutrality, and prison phone rates. Gloria Tristani, former FCC Commissioner and Special Policy Advisor for NHMC concluded the town hall with a tribute to Commissioner Clyburn: “You have been a commissioner of the people, leaving us a shining and lasting example of what it means to be a true public servant.”
