<![CDATA[There is much at stake for Latinos and all communities in light of a recent federal court decision that did away with the network neutrality rules that protected our ability to tell our own stories, organize and conduct business online. Latinos journalists, creators, small business owners and activists depend on an open Internet as a platform to share our stories and distribute our work. For all communities, the Internet is critical to apply for jobs, to our children’s education and to access vital services. But the recent court decision jeopardizes the freedom we have all come to enjoy on the Internet, as it will open the door for large corporations to have an unfair advantage and create barriers. Tomorrow via webinar, join NHMC to learn what is at stake for Latinos in light of the lack of an open internet, and learn how you can take action to save the open internet. Click here to register. The webinar will be held at 1pm ET/10am PT tomorrow, March 6, 2014, and will feature founder and creator of technology lifestyle blog Mi Vida Tec Rosa Alonso, DeSuMama blogger Vanessa Bell, actress and writer Ruth Livier, as well as NHMC policy director Michael Scurato, National Association of Latino Producers (NALIP) executive director Axel Caballero, and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) presidentHugo Balta. This webinar is hosted by the Voices for Internet Freedom Coalition, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) and the National Association of Latino Independent Producers.
