Stop the Trump administration’s attack on Net Neutrality
Take Action here: https://www.savetheinternet.com/sti-home#what

Net Neutrality is not negotiable. It’s essential to everything we need in our society and democracy — from educational and economic opportunities to political organizing and dissent. Millions of people fought for over a decade to secure lasting Net Neutrality protections. We will not accept anything less. We urge you to reject any attacks on real Net Neutrality.

Net Neutrality keeps the internet free and open — enabling anyone to share and access information of their choosing without interference from companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.

But the Trump administration wants to shut down the open internet.
The Federal Communications Commission passed historic rules protecting Net Neutrality in 2015, but Trump’s FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, wants to destroy them. Despite Net Neutrality’s popularity across the political spectrum, Pai is conspiring right now with industry lobbyists to take away these crucial protections.

Net Neutrality is essential to education, economic opportunity, social movements and dissent. The Trump administration is about to find out the hard way what happens if you mess with the internet.

The Stakes Are High
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has vowed to take a “weed whacker” to the Net Neutrality rules. He’s also moving fast to undermine other key consumer protections. Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress have a better chance than ever before of passing industry-backed laws that harm the open internet.

The Fight’s Not Over
Companies like Comcast and Verizon aren’t used to losing in Washington, and they’ll do everything they can to knock down the FCC’s rules. But now a new threat has emerged: President Trump and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai want to get rid of Net Neutrality and let the cable and phone companies control the internet.

What Can We Do To Fight Back?
It took millions of people signing petitions, bombarding the FCC with comments and protesting in the streets to win the Net Neutrality rules. We need to do all that — and more — to beat back the very real threats facing us now.  Free Press is already working with a diverse network of allies to hold Chairman Pai accountable and defeat bad legislation in Congress. But we can’t do it alone: join the fight now.
