Today’s Action: Save Net Neutrality – support the Discharge Petition

Thanks to your calls, Senate Democrats passed the first step toward saving Net Neutrality. The second step now lives in the House, where Democrats have begun proceedings to force a vote using a “discharge petition.”

With a new scandal rocking Trump’s White House seemingly every day, it’s easy to forget some of the egregious acts of Trump and his enablers in Congress. But we can’t afford to forget — especially when it comes to Net Neutrality, because exploitation and manipulation of the internet is one of the big reasons we have President Trump right now.

That’s why House Democrats are working to collect signatures for a discharge petition — because if half of the House signs, they can force the vote to save Net Neutrality. We’re already at 124 signatures, but we’ll need 218 to make it happen.

Check to see if your Representative has signed. If they haven’t, call or email your Representative and demand they protect Net Neutrality by signing the discharge petition.

In December, Trump-appointed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chair Ajit Pai ignored overwhelming bipartisan outcry, including 50,000 signatures from the OD Action community, and removed Obama-era net neutrality protections, flinging open the doors for four massive telecom corporations to censor the web and raise prices for consumers.

This isn’t just about streaming our favorite shows (it’s about that too). Without net neutrality, every consumer will lose as corporations gain the power to determine what we consume, a change that could have devastating consequences on independent voices and give Trump leverage to silence his critics.

83% of voters support net neutrality, including 75% of Republicans. Republican Representatives know their base want to save Net Neutrality… but they don’t want to go on the record with a choice between their constituents and special interest donors. So we’ll have to make them.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative and demand they support Net Neutrality by signing the discharge petition. Remind them that we vote them into office, not telecom corporations – and we can vote them out.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to stop Trump from using dirty legal tricks to silence ex-staffers speaking out against his crimes, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
