The FCC killed net neutrality, giving companies like Comcast and Verizon the power to control what we see and do online with throttling, censorship, and expensive new fees. But Congress can still reverse that decision using the Congressional Review Act (CRA). The Senate already passed a resolution, but now the House is running out of time to do the same. We’re focusing all of our energy on key lawmakers who are facing tight races, making them the most likely to listen to constituents. Here’s what we’re raising money to 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 outraged 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. If you’d like to join the list of Internet Champions, fill out the form below to help match donations or make a significant financial donation of at least $500.
If you represent an organization that would like to help preserve a free and open internet by matching donations for this campaign, please fill out the form below and press ”JOIN US.” We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
The loss of net neutrality has already begun to have a real-world impact on the lives of people across America. Businesses have suffered. Veterans have been ignored. And first responders have had their safety put at risk in the absence of a free and open internet. 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.”
