We're right on the verge of winning a huge victory for the future of the Internet.
We know that it's a lot easier to come close to a victory than to actually secure it. That's why we've got to do everything we can to make sure that when the FCC votes next Thursday on Net Neutrality rules, we, the Internet users, the small businesses, the entrepreneurs, the artists, the bloggers, the grassroots—win.
In the last few days, Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, and the members of Congress who do their bidding have ramped up their campaign to sabotage Net Neutrality, threatening to undo the progress we've made.
Congress is on recess this week, so we have a chance to reach our representatives while they're at home.
Can you call make a call right now to save Net Neutrality?
Here's where to call:
Senator Charles Schumer
New York District Office: 212-486-4430
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
New York District Office: 212-688-6262
Representative Gregory Meeks
Arverne District Office: 347-230-4032
You can tell them: "Don't let Verizon and Comcast block the FCC's rules to protect the open Internet that we all depend on."The cable industry's friends in Congress are throwing everything they've got at us—launching a frivolous investigation, readying legislation, even likening the open Internet rules FCC Chairman Wheeler proposed to Internet censorship, which is the opposite of what it is.1 They're stooping low, but if we keep the pressure on, we will prevail. We've come this far; let's bring this home.
Thanks for all you do.
