The i2Coalition’s Internet Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill is in full swing and I couldn’t be more excited. Yesterday, members met with several members of Congress, educating them about the Internet and discussing policy goals for the 113th Congress. Last night, we spent the evening at the “Celebrate the Innovation Economy” reception sponsored by CEA and co-hosted by Engine Advocacy.
We have a full day ahead of us today, including a luncheon with Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), and Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, followed by numerous educational demos from our members about just how the Internet works. While many supporters are unable to join us today, there are still ways for you to participate and help:
- Watch our luncheon live on our website beginning today at 1 p.m. EST: http://i2coalition.com/live
