Trump’s FCC has taken steps to do away with net neutrality, which would undermine equal access to the internet in our country. But the fight is far from over. We will get an update from two outstanding Bay Area leaders and activists about the attack on net neutrality; why net neutrality is so crucial for our democracy and must be defended; and what we can do in San Francisco to protect it at all levels of government.

Speakers:
Tracy Rosenberg is the executive director of Media Alliance. She organizes and advocates for a free, accountable and accessible media system; monitors the mainstream media for accuracy and fair representation; and has facilitated the training of many groups in effective communications. She is published in newspapers and blogs around the country. She serves on the board of the Alliance for Community Media (Western Region), on the steering committee of the Media Action Grassroots Network and co-coordinates Oakland Privacy.

Katherine Trendacosta is a Policy Analyst at the Electronic Frontier foundation, focusing on intellectual property, net neutrality, fair use, free speech online, and intermediary liability. With a background as a writer and editor of science fiction and science, she got her JD at USC Gould School of Law, doing work with the USC Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic. She has major responsibility for Net Neutrality activism at EFF.
