Call FCC Chairman Ajit Pai TODAY
Ajit Pai is the new chairman of the FCC.
That puts him in charge of the agency responsible for protecting Net Neutrality, blocking harmful media and telecom mergers, ensuring affordable broadband reaches everyone in America, and protecting consumers from privacy invasions or price gouging by phone and cable companies.
Unfortunately Pai's a former Verizon lawyer who has vowed to reverse all of the agency's pro-consumer free speech protections. He told phone and cable lobbyists that he'll take a "weed whacker" to the Net Neutrality rules and roll back internet-privacy safeguards.1 And he's consistently taken positions that disproportionately harm people of color — voting against reforms to exorbitant prison phone-call rates, blocking opportunities for communities to build their own broadband networks and attacking programs designed to help low-income families get online.
Our communications networks are the veins of the resistance movement. For us to fight back and win on everything under attack, we need open platforms for free speech.
Call Chairman Pai today and urge him to protect Net Neutrality and support your online rights.
