Tell Rep. Meeks: Save the Internet!

Here's an urgent call to action from our allies at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, who are organizing to protect Net Neutrality and save the Internet! 

Dear MoveOn member, 

The White House responded on day one of our Net Neutrality campaign—issuing a statement distancing itself from the FCC's plan to create an Internet fast lane just for big corporations.

More than 60,000 people have already signed the joint petition from MoveOn and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.

Celebrities Alyssa Milano and Wil Wheaton tweeted about our efforts, and there was a flood of media coverage.

Now, we need to build on this momentum and continue to pressure the FCC.

Will you call Representative Gregory Meeks right now and tell him:
Please tell FCC Chair Tom Wheeler that he must carry out President Obama's promise and support Net Neutrality. If he won't, he should step down so Obama can appoint someone who will stand up for Internet freedom and make the Internet better for all of us.

Here's where to call: 

Representative Gregory Meeks
Phone: (202) 225-3461

The House of Representatives has called FCC Chair Tom Wheeler to testify on May 20, so now is the time to make sure members of Congress know where we stand.

The next Facebook or Netflix could be in development right now, but it may never have a chance to succeed if the FCC allows big corporations to force it into an Internet slow lane.
