Craig Silliman talks criminal justice reform.

In our latest Up To Speed podcast, we sat down with Craig Silliman, Verizon’s Chief Administrative, Legal and Public Policy Officer, for a conversation about the criminal justice system and calls for reform.  It’s an issue that impacts millions of Americans, including our customers, our employees and our business. And as one of the nation’s largest and most influential corporations, we have an opportunity to create positive change. On October 23rd, Silliman will host a panel of experts in Washington DC to discuss the current state of criminal justice reform, opportunities for more reforms and the challenges on the horizon.

V teamers play ball with the Miracle League.

Last Saturday, 30 Verizon volunteers supported the Miracle League, a baseball league for children with physical and developmental disabilities. V Teamers helped kids run the bases, cheered them on, and even announced the game. Verizon also presented a $10,000 grant to help repair damage made to their specialty field by flooding earlier this year.
