Show up and speak out for net neutrality!

The new chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai (a former Verizon lawyer), and Big Cable are waging an all-out assault on the open Internet and have a plan to kill net neutrality. If they get their way, the Internet as we know it will never be the same…
To win, we need to keep the pressure on Congress to take a strong stand against the FCC and Big Cable’s plan to destroy the Internet.
The most effective way to stop them? Congress *really* listens when people show up. So as part of the massive July 12th day of action for net neutrality people are planning to show up at their lawmakers offices— IRL! (in real life!)— to tell our representatives they must reject the FCC’s plan to kill net neutrality.
RSVP now to show up and speak out for net neutrality!
Here’s what you can do on Wednesday, July 12th in your community to defend net neutrality:
- RSVP here and tell your friends.
- Show up on Wednesday at 6:00pm local time and gather in front of your Congressional representative’s closest office holding signs. Our basic message is: “Defend the free and open Internet, reject the FCC’s plan to kill net neutrality!” Need help finding your closest member of Congress' office? Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Be energetic, but positive! We’re angry that politicians don’t understand the Internet or how it works while ISPs like Comcast want to destroy the open Internet. In response, we must educate the public, lawmakers, and the press about WHY net neutrality is important. So let’s channel our anger into action!
- SNAP A SELFIE FOR NET NEUTRALITY: Make sure your representative knows where you stand on this issue. Take a selfie of yourself or your group in front of your Congressional representative’s office and tweet them, for example: “Defend the free and open Internet @MarshaBlackburn, please reject the FCC’s plan to repeal net neutrality #savethenet”
Today up until July 12th:
- Message, call, and text everyone you know to come show support. It really works!
- Let us know if you’ll have time to do more outreach and we'd be happy to assist you further: email@example.com
