A bombshell court decision ruled that federal and state lawmakers have the power to create net neutrality laws. Cable company lobbyists are already swarming Congress to push bad legislation that will allow them to continue throttling Internet speeds, blocking access, and charging unfair fees. Donate now and our Internet champions will match every dollar in our effort to restore net neutrality once and for all.
Ever since the FCC repealed net neutrality, ISPs like Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have been throttling traffic "pretty much everywhere all the time." But a federal court has ruled that the FCC's policy doesn't prevent net neutrality laws at the state or national level. Big cable lobbyists are pushing for bad legislation, but we can stop them by forcing Congress to pass the bipartisan Save the Internet Act. With your help, here’s what we'll do:
When millions of people call and email their representatives, Congress listens. Your donations will help us direct pressure in key districts where it matters most.
As politicians in key districts are hearing from voters, we’ll turn up the pressure by putting up billboards and running ads in digital and print media.
We’ll organize meetings with candidates who are willing to engage with us, and we’ll protest lawmakers who refuse to listen to their constituents. We’ll mail postcards, put up lawn signs, and send mass text messages to ensure that voters in these key districts know who supports net neutrality ahead of election day.
These folks have been on the front lines defending net neutrality and fighting for an Internet full of free expression, information, and creativity.

The loss of net neutrality has had a real-world impact on the lives of people across America. Businesses have suffered. Veterans have been ignored. And first responders have been put at risk in the absence of a free and openinternet. Here’s what some of them have to say:
“As a proud veteran of the USMC, I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs. Corporations should have no right to restrict or favor any internet traffic over another. In contrast to the lies of Ajit Pai we have seen corporations such as Verizon, Comcast and others attempt to do just that prior to the previous net neutrality laws (which did not go far enough to protect the internet). Please do what we we elected you to do and represent the American people in this and not lobbyists for corporations. We will be watching how you vote.”
