Action Alert: No to Repeal of Net Neutrality

On Thursday, the FCC is due to vote to repeal Net Neutrality. This action endangers our democratic right to unfettered access to the internet and places too much power to restrict content in the hands of large corporations. In their process to gather feedback about this change, bots have flooded the FCC with pro-repeal messages. At least 28 Senators, including Sen Bennet, have asked for a postponement of the vote. We need to contact the FCC every day this week and tell them NOT TO REPEAL net neutrality. Call 202-418-1000 or write to the FCC.
