Washington, DC’s Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) will convene some of the nation’s most noted leaders on broadband policy, telecommunications, and social justice to “Bridge The Digital Divide” at its 3rd Annual Broadband & Social Justice Summit.

WASHINGTON, DC, 1/13/2012 – The Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) created the Broadband and Social Justice (BBSJ) Summit in 2010 to serve as a forum around broadband and telecom inequities, begin action on proposed policy, and to give a voice to the popular MMTC Broadband & Social Justice Blog.  This yearʼs Summit will feature FCC Commissioners Robert McDowell and Mignon Clyburn; Congressman Chaka Fattah; White House Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra; NTIA Deputy Director Anna Gomez; USDA Deputy Undersecretary Cheryl Cook; Verizon Executive Vice President Tom Tauke; NAACP General Counsel Kim Keenan; Politic365 Editor Kristal High; One Economy Chair Rey Ramsey; and NAB Chief Strategy Officer Chris Ornelas.

This year’s speakers will present such sessions as “The FCC’s Broadband Policy Priorities,” “Spectrum Reallocation:  How Will The National Broadband Plan’s Goals Be Realized?” and “Who Owns What’s Online?  Intellectual Property And Multicultural Entrepreneurship.”  The Summit will include awards and networking with participants at the annual Social Justice Reception.

On January 25-26, preceding the Summit, the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative (NOBEL) Women will host its annual Women’s Congressional Broadband Technology and Media Forum at the Westin Georgetown.  Registration for either event will cover both. Registration and sponsorship details can be found on the BBSJ Registration Page.
