NAACP Responds To FCC Public Notice

WASHINGTON --  This week the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Genachowski issued a Public Notice seeking additional public comment in the Open Internet proceeding. As a response to the Public Notice, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued the following statement:

"We recognize, appreciate and support Chairman Genachowski's rationale for seeking additional input about the potential application of Open Internet principles to specialized services and wireless broadband.  As the NAACP emphasized in our April 10, 2010 comments to the FCC, we believe it is important to ensure that broadband regulations are supported by documentation that they will not depress adoption or increase costs to racial or ethnic minorities, multilingual, tribal, or local populations.  Equally important, we hope this opportunity will help facilitate a resolution to this issue – enabling all parties to focus their attention and efforts on expediting broadband access, adoption and affordability for all Americans," said Hilary O. Shelton, Director NAACP Washington Bureau/Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Policy.

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest grassroots based civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.
