On Friday, September 29, 2023, the FCC’s Task Force to Prevent Digital Discrimination will host a listening session in New York City to gain additional information and understanding from affected communities, state, local, and Tribal governments, public interest advocates, and providers about challenges, barriers and experiences in ensuring all people of the United States benefit from equal access to broadband. The purpose of the listening session is to continue the Commission’s outreach in support of its ongoing efforts to promote equal access to broadband for everyone.
The listening session will take place from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT, at the Medgar Evers College, Academic Complex Building AB1, Edison O. Jackson Auditorium, 1638 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11225. The program agenda will include presentations from the Task Force, local leaders and other stakeholders, and will include an opportunity for members of the public to share their broadband access experiences in furtherance of the Commission’s goals to create a framework for addressing digital discrimination. The listening session will be recorded and archived on the FCC’s website.
