[MN] Get Up to Speed with High Speed!

Join the Minnesota Digital Justice Coalition (Main Street Project, Minnesota Center for Neighborhood Organizing, Twin Cities Community Voicemail, and the People Escaping Poverty Project) on Monday, February 15th.

The event is from 12pm-2pm at the Brian Coyle Center. The center is located at 420 15th Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55454. The special guest is Mark Ritchie, Minnesota Secretary of State. They're providing free food provided by La Loma Restaurant, but the purpose of the meeting is to increase awareness of our community needs and our relationship to the internet.

Our housing, our education, our lives and our movement today depend heavily on the internet. This dependency puts those with access at an advantage and communities historically excluded at a disadvantage to participate fully in our communities. At this educational forum, we'll talk about the importance of the internet in our everyday lives and discuss how the struggles we face offline, relate to our struggles online. This is being held as part of the Media Action Grassroots Network's National Day of Action!

Here's a clip from the American president regarding his support of Net Neutrality:
