To develop a new generation of media and telecommunications activists, Andy mentors law students to represent civil rights, civil liberties, media justice, religious, and other organizations (including Benton) before the Federal Communications Commission, other government agencies, and the courts. Among other issues, focuses on: 1) retaining broadcast ownership rules to ensure diversity and localism; 2) enhancing transparency by obtaining, expanding and enforcing online access to station public files and identifying the true sponsors of political ads; 3) driving down the high cost of prison phone rates; 4) maintaining 2015’s network neutrality rules; 5) reforming and modernizing the Universal Service Fund Lifeline program which subsidizes the connectivity needs of low-income Americans; 6) protecting consumer privacy and enforcing the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act; 7) representing low power FM stations on FCC license authorization; and 8) enforcing disability access, including closed captioning.
