On the campaign trail in 2007, candidate Obama visited Google headquarters in Silicon Valley and pledged to "take a back seat to no one" in his commitment to Net Neutrality.
Since then he has appointed two FCC chairmen — Julius Genachowski and Tom Wheeler — who have failed to live up to the president's pledge.
On July 23, Obama will return to California for a big fundraiser and we want to remind him how much we all care about the open Internet. That's why we're holding a big rally in L.A. to get the message out.
Here are the details:
WHAT: Rally for Net Neutrality
WHEN: Wed., July 23, 4–7 p.m.
WHERE: Memorial Branch of the L.A. Public Library, 4625 W. Olympic Blvd. (on the corner of Olympic and S. Mullen Avenue).
BRING: Wear orange and bring a big, bold sign to show your support for the open Internet.
Help us grab the president's attention — RSVP today!
