FSF Seminar – A New FCC or the Same Old, Same Old?
The National Press Club, 
11:45 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.  

The Free State Foundation will hold a lunch seminar titled, “A New FCC or the Same Old, Same Old?” on Thursday, October 24, 2013, at the National Press Club.

With Tom Wheeler and Michael O’Rielly likely to arrive shortly as the new FCC Chairman and Commissioner, the FCC will be back to its full five-member complement. With a newly reconstituted FCC in place, and with ongoing dramatic changes in the communications and Internet marketplace occurring almost daily, this program will explore questions such as: Should we expect to see long-overdue institutional reforms at the FCC? What specifically should be done, if anything, to reorient the agency consistent with the dramatic marketplace and technological changes? What reforms can be implemented without congressional action? If congressional action is needed, are there measures short of a comprehensive overhaul of the Communications Act that should be enacted more quickly?

This Free State Foundation seminar will explore these questions – and more!

Restore the 4th rally

Restore the Fourth D.C.
Restore the Fourth DC members:

It’s been quite a week for NSA watchers. Obamaremarked on CNN that his administration must “do a better job” of justifying NSA surveillance programs, and thanks to a request made by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) under the Freedom of Information Act, the federal government disclosed a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) opinion from 2011 which held that the NSA has engaged in unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens.

Locally, there are several upcoming events of interest to Restore the Fourth DC members:

  • On Saturday, October 26, RTF DC will host a national march against NSA surveillance in conjunction with the American Civil Liberties Union, StopWatchingUs, Demand Progress, and other groups. The march will be bracketed by visits to members of Congress on Friday and Monday, and educational events and speakers on Sunday. We will need lots of volunteers to help make this event a success, so if you are interested in getting more involved, read on!
  • On Friday, September 27, a screening of the film Terms and Conditions May Apply will be held on Capitol Hill. The film takes a look at how much information about us is collected as we use the internet (spoiler alert: it’s a lot!) and what corporations and the government do with our data. This event will be hosted by Demand Progress, one of RTF DC’s coalition partners. We will send out more details as they are available.
  • Every Thursday at 7pm, Restore the Fourth is now holding a weekly meeting / happy hour at The Codmother (1334 U St NW, Washington, DC). Please join us!


If you haven’t told your friends about Restore the Fourth yet, now is the time! The DC movement is one of the largest in the country and it’s crucial that we keep momentum going. You can invite people to get more information about RTF DC by sending them a link to our newsletter sign-up form.

Want to help make the national march in October happen? We need volunteers! If you’re interested in receiving more information about volunteer opportunities, please take a moment to fill out ourvolunteer sign-up form, and we’ll be in touch with information on how you can get involved.

Thanks for reading! We hope to see you at the Codmother on Thursday.

Outreach Coordinator, Restore the Fourth D.C.
