Join Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon Clyburn in a panel conversation with government and civic leaders working to ensure every person can access the internet. At this vital time in our nation, expect a wide-ranging conversation that covers local and national policy solutions, on-the-ground stories of breaking the digital divide, and a look at what's next in the fight to get everyone online.
Philadelphia is the poorest big city in the United States. Like many cities with a high concentration of poverty, Philadelphia struggles with broadband access, which prevents thousands of Philadelphians from connecting to the jobs, education and healthcare that everyone deserves.

Other panelists include:
Philadelphia City Council Majority Leader Bobby Henon
Philadelphia City Council Member Helen Gym
Chief Administrative Officer Rebecca Rhynhart, City of Philadelphia
