Net Neutrality for the Faith Community: Webinar Dec. 6Submitted by Cheryl Mon Nov 14 2011 14:50:56 GMT-0500 (EST)
Last week the U.S. Senate fortunately voted in favor of retaining the existing net neutrality rules, adopted by the Obama FCC at the end of last year. As OC Inc. said last year, those rules are not as strong as we would like, but at least we have something on the books.
The debate is not over -- the issue will be considered in court and some policymakers continue to threaten to remove the limited protections we have now. Next month UCC OC Inc. is proud to collaborate with our friends at the World Association for Christian Communication on a webinar explaining net neutrality for the faith community in both the US and Canada. Join us!
Net Neutrality for the Faith Community: What You Need To Know
United Church of Christ's Office of Communication, Inc (UCC OC, Inc) and World Association for Christian Communication, North America (WACC North America) jointly invite you to a webinar on Net Neutrality, focusing on its importance for the faith community.
Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 from 1pm to 2pm Eastern
Space is limited.

Faith communities and social justice advocates have invested significant resources in new technologies – from web sites to online video to social media. But did you know that Internet policies in the US and Canada could adversely impact our investments in electronic communication? The Internet that we know today could be rapidly moving to a model that resembles the old broadcast and cable model dominated by a few deep-pocketed corporate interests. While the U.S. Senate just voted to preserve the existing U.S. rules, this debate is far from over.
Presenters Cheryl Leanza, Policy Advisor, UCC OC Inc. (www.uccmediajustice.org), and Reilly Yeo, Managing Director, Open Media (http://www.openmedia.ca/) will help you understand net neutrality, why it is important, and what you can do to advocate for it in Canada and the United States.
