To the U.S. Senate:

The Biden administration has renominated public-interest champion Gigi Sohn to fill the fifth and final commissioner’s spot at the Federal Communications Commission.

Since January 2021, the FCC has been deadlocked and unable to start many of the bold rulemakings it needs to pursue. We need a fully staffed agency to move on those priorities as soon as possible.

There’s so much we need the FCC to do. The agency must ensure that the billions Congress has invested in broadband affordability actually reach those who need it most. It should restore its authority to regulate broadband and adopt robust Net Neutrality rules. It's also critical that the FCC reckon with media regulators’ history on race and ensure our communications infrastructure can withstand the climate emergency.

Please reject the smear campaign and confirm Gigi Sohn without further delay.

    Tell Your Senators to Confirm FCC Nominee Gigi Sohn

    Tell the Senate to Confirm Gigi Sohn Without Further Delay

    Good news: President Joe Biden has renominated public-interest advocate Gigi Sohn to serve on the Federal Communications Commission.

    President Biden first nominated Sohn to the position in October 2021, but she has since faced an intense, unprecedented smear campaign filled with homophobic, antisemitic and underhanded attacks. This industry-funded campaign is designed to deadlock the agency and prevent it from fulfilling its mission of serving the public interest.

    Enough. The new Senate has a renewed mandate to serve the people. It can start by immediately confirming Gigi Sohn. Add your name to our petition demanding the Senate confirm this public-interest champion without further delay.
