On Thursday, June 9, 2016, the House Committee on Appropriations will review a Financial Services Appropriations bill that could make or break the future of an open Internet.

Net Neutrality means that no Internet Service Provider -- no matter how big or wealthy -- can privilege certain information on the Internet over other information. Without these safeguards, Internet access and content could be restricted at the whims of big corporations or political heavyweights.  

For Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and other communities of color, Net Neutrality is especially crucial. Too often, our communities are pushed to the margins. An open Internet helps level the playing field by providing spaces for cultural, economic, and political engagement in which our experiences, identities, and language needs are reflected.

House Republicans’ attacks on Net Neutrality is an attack on our ability to communicate, access culturally relevant content, and organize online. We can’t take an open and equal Internet for granted.

Can you make a quick call to your Representative to urge them to oppose appropriations that undermine Net Neutrality at tomorrow’s committee markup?
