Internet Access is a Racial Justice Issue
Featuring Jeanine Abrams McLean, Vice President of Fair Count; Matthew Rantanen, Director of Technology at the Southern California Tribal Chairmen’s Association; Brenda Victoria Castillo, President & CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition; and Raymond Pun, Librarian/VP for Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA); this panel addressed critical questions including:
- How can we bring meaningful access to the internet to more communities of color?
- What have been the consequences of the lack of affordable access on communities of color, and how can we address this disparity?
- How can we best ensure that the influx of federal infrastructure funding is distributed to address racial disparities in access?
