On Sep. 14, 2021, more than 100 organizations and community leaders called on the Federal Communications Commission to investigate the history of racism in its media policies and identify reparative actions the agency can take to redress the structural racism that exists in the U.S. media system.

In a letter sent to Acting FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, the organizations wrote: “It’s time for the FCC to acknowledge that its policies and practices are a primary reason why deep structural inequities exist in the media and telecom industries that have harmed the Black community.” The signers urged the agency to “examine the roots of its failure to create a racially just media system” and to “begin to chart a path forward toward a future abundant with repair.”
