****Daily Do for Monday, November 21st, courtesy of 5 Calls****
The FCC has confirmed that they will vote on 12/14 to abolish the regulations that prevent internet service providers from blocking access to certain sites, throttling internet speeds, and otherwise controlling what websites and online services are available to their customers. As Keoki Kauanoe just reminded us, this is not a partisan issue – all consumers will lose under this proposal.
ACTION 1: Call the FCC Chairman
Call Ajit Pai, FCC Chairman at 202-418-1000 to protest plans to abolish net neutrality protections.
My name is [NAME] and I’m a concerned customer from [CITY, WA]. I’m calling to express my disapproval that the FCC is trying to kill net neutrality and the strong Title II oversight of Internet Service Providers. Preserving an open internet is crucial for fair and equal access to the resources and information available on it.
ACTION 2: Call Your MoCs
Call your Members of Congress to begin finding a legislative fix to preserve net neutrality.
- Senator Patty Murray, 253-572-3636, @PattyMurray
- Senator Maria Cantwell, 253-572-2281, @SenatorCantwell
- D10 Congressman Denny Heck, 360-459-8514, @RepDennyHeck
- D3 Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, 360-695-6292, @HerreraBeutler
- Text RESIST to 50409 and follow the prompts to fax/write/call your Members of Congress
My name is [NAME] from [ZIP]. I’m calling to ask that Congress begin working to find a bipartisan legislative replacement for the FCC’s Title II oversight of internet service providers. If the FCC votes to reverse these Title II requirements, a legislative fix will be essential to ensure access to a free and open internet.
