We're Suing the FCC to Save Net Neutrality
We’re suing the FCC over its shameful decision to destroy the Net Neutrality rules.
Chairman Pai and the two other Republican commissioners voted to destroy the open internet, ignoring the voices of tens of millions of people and handing control of the internet to companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.
These companies are now free to carve the internet into fast and slow lanes. They could block or slow down any content, services or apps they choose — and even silence political speech they disagree with. This is terrifying for anyone using the internet to organize for justice and challenge the powerful.
We won’t stand for it
Let us be clear: Ajit Pai will not have the last word on Net Neutrality. We intend to sue the FCC on the basis of its broken process, deeply flawed legal reasoning, willful rejection of evidence that contradicts its preordained conclusions, and absolute disregard for public input. We have a very strong case in court.
But we won’t stop there. We’re also urging lawmakers to overturn the agency’s decision and fighting back online and in the streets. And people are showing up — in red states and blue states, big cities and small towns. They’re discussing Net Neutrality in Teen Vogue, NASCAR fan forums, Black Lives Matter meetings and church on Sunday.
There's no time to lose.
Donate today — we need to raise $100,000 so we can keep fighting back in the crucial weeks ahead.
