KEEP NET NEUTRALITY — FOR EVERYONE!

If you haven’t done this yet, PLEASE do. This isn’t a political issue. Everyone who uses and needs the internet — for business, telephones, email, blogs, messages to friends and family. Anyone who watches WiFi television on their TV, computer, phone, or tablet  … WE ALL NEED A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD to do our business, whatever it is. We need a place where Comcast and others like them cannot take it away. We got this bill passed two years ago. Now, they are trying to take it back.

The results of this would be personally catastrophic for most of us, no matter what we do for a living. Don’t let them kill this. Whatever your political opinions are, we REALLY DO NEED THE INTERNET.

It isn’t an “extra” anymore. It’s a basic part of living in the today’s world.

Sign up, sign on, and watch the skies!


Friends,

Like the open Internet? So do we. Unfortunately, Ajit Pai, the new Chair of the Federal Communications Commission, is trying to upend the Internet as we know it today.

Chairman Pai has announced a plan to undo the strong, enforceable rules put in place in a hard-fought battle in 2015 to protect the open Internet. Without these net neutrality rules, Verizon, Comcast, and the other Internet Service Providers will be able to control what we do online. They will be free to block content, control the flow of information, and create pay-to-play schemes.

Big Telecom wants to reap big profits through schemes that will allow them — not Internet users — to pick winners and losers online.

This Thursday, the FCC will take its first vote on Chairman Pai’s disastrous plan to screw consumers. We need you to raise your voice — sign this petition to tell Ajit Pai, Verizon, and Comcast that we won’t stand by and let them kill the open Internet.

This is the LINK: https://petitions.signforgood.com/ProtectNetNeutrality/…

Because of net neutrality rules, the Internet has become an unparalleled engine for democracy, innovation, education, communication, entertainment and commerce. Help us save the Internet from Comcast and its cronies in Washington.

Raising your voices,

Lauren Windsor
Executive Director
American Family Voices


The information you submit through this form including your name, address (required by the FCC) and message will be transmitted to the FCC as an official public comment. As such, it will be publicly available and searchable through the FCC’s website.

In order to send your message to the FCC, your information will pass through a third-party application, which will not retain the data after completing the submission.

By signing this petition, you agree to receive email updates from some of the below participating organizations (no more than four). You can, of course, opt out of receiving these updates at any time.

In 2015, we won strong open Internet protections under Title II of the Communications Act because of a massive public outcry in support of net neutrality, including 4 million of us who spoke out to support it. Since then, opponents of net neutrality have been relentless in trying to take away our hard-fought victory — first in the courts, and now through the FCC. We need to be as relentless in our support of net neutrality as the other side has been in their opposition, and we need to send a strong message to everyone who has power — whether they’re members of the House, the Senate or the FCC — that we will not let them turn back the clock on the open Internet.

Sign the petition today!

  1. I tried to sign it Marilyn, but they wanted valid postal code. I’m thinking by that they mean a US postal code. You’re right this is an international issue. I have signed other petitions about this. It’s becoming a human right.

  2. Is this an American thing, or are all countries able to sign and would it be of any use if you sign from another country – just asking.

    • I think this is an international event. It has been for some years. The “Internet suppliers” want to make the internet something they can play with so the big spenders get better support and we little folks get lots less … and it enables them to prevent us from getting stuff of which they do not like. They will promote their programs and make it difficult to find of view other things. Check it out. There is undoubtedly a European chapter too.

      Regardless, YOU use American channels TOO. That’s the thing. The Internet isn’t “just one country.” It’s everywhere!
