UNITY: Journalists of Color, Inc.
January 13, 2010
UNITY: Journalists of Color is an alliance of four national minority journalism organizations, the Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists Association and the Native American Journalists Association whose goal is to increase diversity in newsroom and in the coverage of communities of color. On behalf of our alliance, representing over 8,000 journalists of color, we urge the Federal Communications Commission to protect the openness of the Internet with strong Network Neutrality rules. We have a golden opportunity to avoid repeating the media’s mistakes of the past, and we must seize the moment.
