Malkia Cyril: “Digital Sanctuary: An Antidote to Authoritarianism” | Talks at Google

Malkia Cyril, a poet and activist who is best known as the executive director of the Center for Media Justice and for spearheading national grassroots efforts of the Net Neutrality campaign, framing the discourse on protecting net neutrality as shifting away from the notion of “media democracy” and instead as a case of “media justice.” Cyril is a co-founder of the Media Action Grassroots Network.

Malkia sits down with Wilson White, director of Public Policy at Google, to discuss their background in digital civil rights and the responsibility technology giants and media outlets hold in ensuring the voice of the underprivileged cannot be censored or otherwise softened by a lack of net neutrality and proactive, conscious reform.

Moderated by Wilson White.
