June 11 is the date Net Neutrality officially ends. Senator Ed Markey formally discharged the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the FCC’s net neutrality repeal, forcing a vote as early as next week. We need just one more U.S. senator on our side to win and move on to the House of Representatives.
Without net neutrality, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will be able to block apps, slow websites, and charge extra fees that none of us can afford. They’ll control what we see and do online.
If we don’t make enough calls to Congress, lawmakers will think we don’t care and the FCC will get away with killing net neutrality. ISPs will gain the power to restrict the Internet’s usefulness for independent news, creative work, and social change—a devastating blow to just about everyone online.
We have the power to stop this. I don’t favor petitions over calls, but our Senators are already onboard. There are several petitions online that will be delivered to the Senate. This seems to be the easiest and is supported by several groups including Democracy for America.
