Mon 4/8: Free the Internet! Call your legislators.

Action – Call your legislators TUESDAY MORNING and make sure they’re voting “YES” on HR 1644 and S.682 – the “Save the Internet Act”.

Despite more than 20 million public comments against the rollback, Trump’s FCC chair and misguided youtuber, Ajit Pai, a former Verizon attorney, rammed a repeal of the 2015 Open Internet Order through the FCC in December 2017. He lied that net-neutrality rules discouraged investment, leaving consumers with fewer options. Hahahaha! At the time of the FCC repeal, 83% of Americans including 75% of Republicans supported net neutrality rules. On Tuesday, April 9th, the US House of Representatives will vote on HR 1644 – “the Save the Internet Act” and then the Senate needs to pass S.682. If passed, this bill will enshrine net neutrality into law and we can see a lot less of Pai. First, do your part.

Minimal script for us lucky 4-for-4 people: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want to thank Rep./Sen. [___] for his/her support of HR 1644 (Rep)/ S.682 (Sen) “Save the Internet” Act, and please reject any amendments or motions to recommit that would weaken it!

  • Rep-check here. (Carbajal and Brownley are on board!)
  • Sen-check here. (Feinstein and Harris are cosponsors too!)

Here’s what you can do to make sure Congress knows everyone is watching:

Fire FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to tell Sen. [___] to vote “NO” on reconfirming Ajit Pai.

More script if you want it: He’s supposed to protect the public interest, but he continuously sides with  deep-pocketed corporations — like Verizon, his former employer.

If you’re on a roll: He’s trying to destroy Net Neutrality protection and the Lifeline program that helps needy communities. He’s also helping the hard-right media giant Sinclair Broadcasting gain an unprecedented number of local TV stations to broadcast their racist and anti-muslim diatribes.

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430

AND Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884
