Protect Net Neutrality
Right now, decisions are being made in D.C. that could change the Internet as we know it!
These changes, if approved by Congress, will strip Internet users of existing net neutrality protections. Net neutrality protections keep Internet service providers from slowing down or blocking access to legal and lawful websites. Without these protections, telecom corporations can dictate what content can be seen by which customers and even enact pay walls for previously free material.
This week, the Senate will vote on a “resolution of disapproval” (S.J. Res. 6). The resolution gives corporations like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon unrestricted power over the Internet, letting these companies block our ability to access online information, education materials, entertainment, or advocacy resources. Passing this resolution will hurt entrepreneurs, activists, media makers and all those who rely on a free and open Internet.
Please call your senators now and tell them to keep corporations from interfering with our Internet. Vote NO on S.J. Res. 6.
