Urban League Expresses Optimism In FCC Plan

 


NEW YORK -- Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League, said he is optimistic that the Federal Communications Commission orders on open internet will protect the interests of consumers and facilitate broadband driven job creation and investment.

“This order will protect an open internet and protect the interests of consumers and facilitate job creation by providing clarity that is essential for investment in broadband networks” Morial said. “Too many people in our communities lack access to broadband to access information and services that are essential for economic and social empowerment. This order will help rectify that by encouraging investment in broadband networks.”

"The National Urban League took a leadership role in supporting the FCC’s deliberations that led to these orders -- we  met with FCC Commissioners and took a lead in the public discourse on this issue. We will continue to do that to ensure that the National Broadband Plan is fully implemented, the universal service fund is reformed and minority and women owned businesses and workers are afforded meaningful opportunities to participate in the expansion, deployment and build-out of broadband networks in the United States”.

The National Urban League is the nation’s largest civil rights organization dedicated to economic empowerment in order to elevate the standard of living in historically underserved urban communities. Founded in 1910 and headquartered in New York City, the National Urban League spearheads the efforts of its local affiliates through the development of programs, public policy research and advocacy. Today, there are more than 100 local affiliates in 36 states and the District of Columbia, providing direct services that impact and improve the lives of more than 2 million people nationwide.
