FLOOD THE SENATE TO SAVE NET NEUTRALITY

The FCC voted to repeal net neutrality, letting internet providers like Verizon and Comcast impose new fees, throttle bandwidth, and censor online content. But we can stop them by using the Congressional Review Act (CRA). We need one more vote to win in the Senate, and we're launching an Internet-wide push to get it.

What will happen on February 27

Websites, Internet users, and online communities will come together to harness our power to secure the #OneMoreVote we need to pass the CRA resolution in the Senate. We'll provide tools for everyone to make it super easy for your followers / visitors to take action. From the SOPA blackout to the Internet Slowdown, we've shown time and time again that when the Internet comes together, we can stop censorship and corruption. Now, we have to do it again!

How can businesses help?

We've learned that Congress listens to business owners. If you own a business, you can tell Congress you support net neutrality by signing our letter supporting the CRA here. If you don't own a business, you can still help out by tweeting at businesses in your area. Learn more here.

What is net neutrality?

Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. "Title II" of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.) The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas. Without net neutrality, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider puts in front of you.

How can we save it?

The FCC voted to kill net neutrality on December 14, 2017. But Congress can block their repeal using the Congressional Review Act (CRA). It takes a simple majority in the Senate and House. It can't be blocked by leadership, and there can be no amendments or filibusters. We already have 50 votes committed in the Senate, so we just need one more to win! Then we take the fight to the House where there are already more than 100 cosponsors. We'll need 218 votes there to win. Let's get started!

SITES: DISPLAY AN ALERT

On February 27, sites from across the web will display a prominent alert on their homepage to flood the Senate with messages in support of using the CRA to overturn the FCC's vote to destroy net neutrality. To use these them, you just need to embed a bit of javascript in the header of your site. Click here to try them out, and then be sure to grab the code on GitHub.
