On June 11, 2019, the UCC's media justice ministry's policy advisor, Cheryl Leanza, argued in federal court against the Federal Communications Commission's new rules that permit significantly more consolidation in radio and television.
Digital Bridge Service Project a Success at General Synod
In June UCC OC, Inc. sponsored a community service project at General Synod, taking volunteers to Digital Bridge, a Milwaukee organization that connects under-served groups and individuals with digital resources that they might not otherwise be able to afford.
Participants learned more about the Digital Bridge from Executive Director Jeff Hanson and about digital inclusion and the UCC's leadership role in media justice from our policy advisor, Cheryl Leanza. Then volunteers helped to clean and prepare 100 video screens in 1 hour so they can be repurposed for low income people and non-profits in Milwaukee and around the world. Check out our pictures from the Digital Bridge activity.
