Earlier this month, new members of CWA’s Broadband Brigade joined other CWA activists for a 2-day Build Broadband Better training. Participants received an overview of CWA’s campaign to expand broadband access at the state and federal levels, discussed strategies for mobilization and advocacy, and polished their digital communications and media relations skills. CWA President Chris Shelton led a discussion session and encouraged all the participants to keep the fight going. The members left the training re-energized and ready to engage other members, elected officials, and their communities on access to broadband.
Brigade members were also featured in a CWA-sponsored panel at this year’s Netroots Nation Conference. CWA District 4 Vice President Linda L. Hinton moderated a panel of CWAers and other activists, talking about how to build broadband better for all. The panel included Chris Lewis, President and CEO of Public Knowledge, and Brigade members Robin Johnson, CWA Local 6215; Fernando Roman, CWA Local 7026; and Matt Wood, CWA Local 3411.
