With additional support from the NYU Department of Media, Culture, and Communication, Humanities Initiative, and NYU Journalism and the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. 

What is the significance of open Internet to racial justice movements? Thanks to the mobilizing efforts and commitment of organizations and individuals committed to social justice, the FCC recently voted in favor of a net neutrality rule to keep the Internet open and free.

Brandi Collins (Color of Change), Steven Renderos (Center for Media Justice), and Cayden Mak (18 Million Rising) discuss digital activism and coalition building strategies. Moderated by Dr. Charlton McIlwain (NYU Media, Culture, and Communications).
