Last Chance: Tell the House to Save Net Neutrality
The Senate has voted in favor of the CRA effort to save Net Neutrality!
This is a huge victory, but we still have to get a majority of the House of Representatives on board before we officially save the internet.
We deserve to celebrate, but we can’t lose momentum: The fate of the free and open internet now hinges on the vote in the House.
Now’s the time to flood the congressional switchboard with more calls than it can handle. We must show every representative that protecting the internet from AT&T, Comcast and Verizon is a defining issue of our time.
Over the years we’ve rallied to tell lawmakers that an open, accessible and affordable internet is essential to the health and well-being of our movements, our local economies and our ability to tell our own stories. Now we must come together to do it again.
This fight is so vital because, at its core, saving Title II Net Neutrality is about preserving civil rights online. The open internet is a place where movements are born, where communities often ignored or stereotyped by mainstream media can tell their own stories, and where families, friends, and people who might have never before connected can build community.
ISPs like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon know how vital the internet is in our everyday lives — that’s why they’re pouring BIG money and resources into this fight. They know that if they can control your internet experience they’ll have even bigger profit margins — and even more money to use for influence peddling. This is a vicious cycle and only a people-powered movement to save the internet can stop it. That’s where you come in.
Make the call right now to remind your representative that they work for the people, not power-hungry telecoms.
We know that we can’t trust Paul Ryan to bring this measure up for a vote, so we need to use what’s called a discharge petition to get it to the floor. Tell your rep to support the CRA and sign the discharge petition today.
