Tell the Congressional Holdouts: Get on the Right Side of History and Save Net Neutrality for All
The Congressional Review Act is a measure lawmakers can use to overturn rules from federal agencies. Supporting the Net Neutrality CRA is the fastest and most effective way to restore the FCC’s strong open-internet rules.
Members of the House of Representatives need to follow two simple steps to restore these protections:
- First, 218 House members need to sign the discharge petition allowing the Net Neutrality CRA to come up for a full vote. 177 lawmakers have already signed on so we need to get just 41 more reps to step up.
- Second, a majority of House members need to vote yes to pass the CRA.
It’s really that simple.
With California becoming the fourth state to pass its own Net Neutrality rules, it’s clear that grassroots activism has companies like Comcast on the ropes. Now is the time to keep pushing for the CRA.
We need to show every representative that it’s crucial to protect their constituents’ online rights from predatory companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.
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, restoring the Title II Net Neutrality rules 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.
Remind the representatives who haven’t yet supported the CRA that they work for the people, not power-hungry telecoms.
Urge the congressional holdouts to sign the discharge petition and support the Net Neutrality CRA today.
