Webinar: Faithful Internet

Rallying people of faith to keep the Internet open and free

Join us at Faithful Internet’s kick-off webinar on Monday, Nov. 24, 2014. RCC member Cheryl Leanza ( DC chapter) will work with colleagues to discuss connecting the dots between communities of faith and net neutrality.

On Monday, Nov 10th, President Obama announced his plan to protect a free and open Internet. Now the public needs to urge an independent federal agency to support Internet openness with a decisive vote. Why should faith leaders and communities raise their voices? Find out what's at stake in this webinar.

Today, the Internet is a place where all Americans have an equal voice – no matter the color of our skin, size of our wallets, or content of our beliefs. Right now, a proposal in Washington would end the Internet as we know it. It will create fast lanes for those who pay – and slow lanes for the rest of us. We will no longer have an equal chance to express ourselves, connect with one another, and stand against injustice, as our faiths teach us. Our faith institutions will also suffer. But we can change that.

In the coming weeks, we can persuade the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to support the President's plan to protect a free and open Internet. Find out what’s at stake for faith leaders and communities – and what you can do. Join us for a special webinar led by national experts on faith and public policy Cheryl Leanza (United Church of Christ, OC Inc.) and Valarie Kaur (Stanford Law School; Auburn Seminary).

Hosted by the United Church of Christ's Media Justice Ministry and the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society. For more information, visit the Faithful Internet site.
