Fight For Internet Rights (Feat. Erin Shields)

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), led by Donald Trump appointee and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai, will vote on December 14 to repeal the 2015 Open Internet order, which was instituted under President Barack Obama to mandate net neutrality in the face of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) trying to dismantle the free and open internet.

Jordan Valerie was joined on the podcast by Erin Shields, National Field Organizer for Internet Rights from the Center for Media Justice and Black Youth Project 100 Organizer, to discuss the history of net neutrality and what we can do to protect it against Chairman Pai and the corporate forces attempting to de-democratize the web.

Jordan Valerie is a cinephile, filmmaker, journalist, political activist, and proud queer woman of color currently serving as Editor-in-Chief of Millennial Politics.

Jordan Valerie also hosts the Millennial Politics Podcast, where she speaks to progressive candidates and leaders about the issues that matter to millennials.
