Coalition Letter on the Prevention and Elimination of Digital Discrimination

June 2, 2022

Advancing Justice - AAJC signs coalition letter in response to FCC request for comment on implementation of civil rights law prohibiting digital discrimination.

Today, nondiscriminatory access to digital services and products is a necessity, not a luxury. Policymakers and the public now recognize the importance of digital services and products and broadband access, as vast numbers of essential services and civic institutions have moved online. Congress has spoken: digital discrimination has no place in the United States. The civil rights community stands ready to act as a close partner to the Commission as it undertakes the extremely important task of carrying out Congress’ direction.
