In an unprecedented display of consensus, a broad and diverse array of groups concerned about America's broadband future will release a Call to Action that provides President-elect Obama and the incoming Congress a policy framework for a comprehensive national broadband strategy.
The Coalition includes prominent communications providers, high technology companies, manufacturers, consumers, labor unions, public interest groups, educators, state and local governments, utilities, content creators, foundations, and other stakeholders in America's broadband future. These organizations believe that such a strategy is critical to America's economic vitality, educational opportunity, public safety, energy efficiency, environmental stability, global competitiveness, and a continuing high quality of life.
At the event, representatives of these organizations will voice support for the Call to Action, discuss their shared goals, and announce their intent continue to work together to address key issues and policy priorities. Please plan to join us at this unprecedented event.
