Justice Doesn't Stop
UCC Media Justice is working over the holidays
This winter, like many before, we are hard at work ensuring that newest program adopted by Congress to bring broadband to low-income people will serve the people it is intended to serve. We were so fortunate when President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Its new Affordable Connectivity Program is a landmark and it goes into effect on December 31. The Federal Communications Commission is working right now to develop rules of the road for the program over the holidays.
UCC Media Justice is there, scrutinizing the law, reading proposals by industry and other non-profits, working with our partners to be sure we get the best program we can for the people who need it most.
All this so that families around the country will be able to get access to the technology they need to keep connected with each other and their communities; to get good jobs or do homework; or enable them to stay home and stay safe if they need to.
