INDEPENDENT OF INDUSTRY: in the past five years, has not worked or lobbied in any capacity for any of the industries that fall under the FCC’s regulatory oversight
CENTERS JUSTICE: has a proven record of advocacy for the rights of low-income families and communities of color
OPPOSES DISCRIMINATION: supports Title II oversight and other laws that give the FCC the authority to prevent unjust discrimination, promote affordable access and protect public safety
PEOPLE POWERED: is committed to public engagement in rulemakings and other agency proceedings
Industry lobbyists should not be picking the next FCC commissioner. We need an independent candidate with public-interest bona fides and a clear commitment to racial justice and civil rights. Please pick a new nominee as soon as possible who will prioritize people over corporations and support policies that can actually hold powerful entities accountable.
