Senate to Vote Wednesday on Net Neutrality

Late last year, the FCC voted to repeal net neutrality. That terrible decision will take effect on June 11 unless Congress takes action.​ Tomorrow, Wednesday May 16, the Senate will hold an important vote to save net neutrality. Please contact your Senators today and tell them to stand up for an open internet.
Congressional supporters of net neutrality are bringing a Congressional Review Act resolution that if passed would reverse the FCC's repeal of net neutrality. Congressional Review Act resolutions, unlike most other votes brought in the Senate, only require a simple majority to pass.
Saving net neutrality is possible, but we need your help!
Net neutrality is what prevents the dwindling number of mega corporations that provide access to the internet--the Comcasts, Verizions, and AT&Ts of the world-- from speeding up, slowing down, or blocking any content, applications, or websites you want to use. Without net neutrality, these corporations could impede your ability to visit certain websites--either because they don’t like the content or because they’ve created a new pay-to-play internet.
