Future of the Internet Town Hall on November 16th, 2010

During the week of the National Congress of American Indian’s Annual Conference, on November 16th, the Media Literacy Project, Center for Media Justice and Free Press will be hosting a townhall on the future of the Internet.

This townhall is crucial to New Mexico and will have an impact on national Internet policy decisions. Right now big cable and telephone companies are trying to dominate the conversation on the future of the Internet. They are trying to convince Congress and the American public that corporate control of the Internet is a free Internet. But New Mexicans already know that we need an affordable and non-discriminatory Internet so that we can have equal educational, health, and business opportunities as everyone else.

This townhall will give Native Americans, Latinos, and all New Mexicans the opportunity to share with FCC Commissioner Michael Copps their ideas, concerns, and experiences with Internet access. Your stories will help shape the future of the Internet for New Mexico and the rest of the country.

Please join us this November 16 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Journal Theater. The future of the Internet depends on all of us. RSVP at www.savetheinternet.com/abqhearing.

You can also download one of our quarter page flyers and share with your networks or get a townhall web badge to embed on your personal and organizational blogs and websites. Also, please share our recent ” Free the Air” video with your friends and networks.
