Public Knowledge welcomes Antoine Prince Albert III, Policy Counsel, to our team to focus on digital platform governance, digital inclusion, free expression online, and net neutrality. He holds a J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center as a Global Law Scholar, as well as a B.A. in Philosophy and a B.A. in French from Morehouse College.

Prior to joining Public Knowledge, Mr. Albert served as the 2020 OPICS Public Interest Graduate Fellow at Georgetown’s Institute for Technology Law & Policy; the inaugural Technology & Telecommunications Fellow at The Leadership Conference for Civil and Human Rights; and a Law Clerk for Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR). Before joining the public interest community to work on technology policy in 2017, he served as an Officer of the United States Navy and a speech and debate instructor at La Salle College High School.

Mr. Albert also serves in a variety of tech-interested organizations. He is a founding member of the Georgetown Global TechNet Working Group, a cohort of international academics and thought leaders dedicated to exploring public interest technology policy in the Global South. Mr. Albert is an alumnus of the BreakLine’s Apex program and volunteers his time to help veterans, women, and people of color pivot into compelling careers in the tech industry. He also co-hosts the monthly Tech Amendment podcast to educate the public on timely tech policy issues. In all his work, Mr. Albert offers policy and social insights on technology’s impact upon Black, Latino, and Indigenous people in the United States, the Caribbean, and sub-Saharan Africa.

The following may be attributed to Chris Lewis, President and CEO of Public Knowledge:

“Public Knowledge is excited to welcome Prince to our Government Affairs team. He brings great talent and experience for someone only in the tech policy space for a few years. Prince cares about facilitating greater opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds and cultures to engage with one another to further understanding, and recognizes that internet policies and the health of the technology sector is at the core of making those exchanges possible. These are values that are central to our mission. We look forward to Prince bringing his own perspective to our policy discussions and working to advance our mission with policymakers.”
