    NHMC and MAG-Net Host Digital Divide Briefing on Capitol Hill

    Last Tuesday, NHMC and the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) co-hosted a Capitol Hill briefing featuring community members and activists from across the country detailing their personal experiences with the Digital Divide.

    Over 60 Congressional staffers and allies packed the briefing room to directly hear stories from everyday citizens about the difficulties they face in getting online—specifically the high price of home broadband connections and the challenges of relying solely on libraries and schools with limited hours.

    I have plenty of friends—they’re just not real.

    Growing up, my closest friends were an African-American martial artist, an Asian-American environmentalist, a science expert, an accomplished gymnast, and a jock who always wore red. They spent most of their time interacting with a robot and taking orders from a giant floating head whenever not fighting monsters sent from this witch who lived on moon. They also chilled inside of mechanical dinosaurs, sometimes?

    Latino Community Has Spoken, Trump Is Out

    6.DonaldTrumpOn June 16, Donald Trump announced his bid for the White House. Among his many infamous comments, was this:

    “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
