Today is Internet Education Day on Capitol Hill
Our second Internet Education Day is underway in Washington, D.C. and members of the i2Coalition are thrilled to be back on Capitol Hill to continue our educational efforts about how the Internet works! Yesterday, i2Coalition members met with Congressional staff leaders to discuss our policy and legislative priorities for this session. Last night, we held our welcome reception and celebration sponsored by the Consumer Electronic Association at Ping Pong Dim Sum. Special thanks to CEA and all of our members who attended!
We have a full schedule ahead of us today, including a 2:00 p.m. event with Cindy Southworth, Vice President of National Network to End Domestic Violence and Ximena Hartsick, President of Phone2Action. We will also be presenting our “Champion of Internet Innovation” awards to Senator John Cornyn and Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren.
