Join the fight for the open internet

On February 22, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) published its order repealing regulations protecting net neutrality—but Congress has 60 days to reverse the FCC’s order.

What’s next?

#OneMoreVote and beyond

Congress can pass a resolution to disapprove under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) within 60 congressional days—requiring bipartisan cooperation and approval by the president.

The Senate only needs one more vote

50 of 100 Senators have committed to supporting a resolution to disapprove of the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality regulations under the CRA. Check out the scoreboard. Only one more vote is needed to move the resolution to the House—with momentum.

The House can act too

It’s important to let your Representative know that you support the CRA and strong net neutrality protections. Even if they miss the chance to reverse the FCC’s order, Congress can pass additional legislation that definitively protects net neutrality and helps prevent future threats to undermine it.

Support legal action

Net neutrality defenders including advocacy groups and state governments are taking legal action against the FCC’s overturning of the open internet rules.


Why it matters

We know what’s at stake with the rollback of net neutrality regulations: an internet protected from discriminatory practices of ISPs like added fees, censorship, and blocking or slowing down website traffic.

A slower, more expensive internet isn’t just inconvenient. It impacts how individuals and organizations around the world innovate and ship software. Here’s how FCC Commissioner Clyburn puts it in her fact sheet:

[This proposal] threatens innovation at the edge, by allowing broadband providers to charge tolls to access their customers. [It] enables offerings that favor the vertically integrated broadband provider’s own content and services over those of consumers and innovators who rely on the internet to grow their own businesses and stay informed.

Don’t stop now

Over the years, thousands of people and organizations have protested repeated threats to net neutrality regulations. Together, we’ve made millions of phone calls, comments, and posts.

Congress heard us in 2014, and we need them to hear us again. Your representatives are currently deciding the future of the internet—and it’s more important than ever to make your voice heard.

Make a ruckus

Commissioners Clyburn and Rosenworcel, as well as supporters of net neutrality in the FCC have urged the public to “make a ruckus”. Let’s continue to make one.
