Don’t Dismantle Net Neutrality

We need to block a vote to upend the free flow of information on the internet before it’s too late.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Pai is pushing to reverse net neutrality protections – important rules for protecting the free flow of information on the internet. Pai’s proposal allows the companies that provide our internet connection new measures of control over what we do online. This would be a devastating blow to the free and open internet we rely on for streaming videos, communicating with our networks – and yes, reading critical news stories about the state of our democracy.

A world without net neutrality means a world where internet companies like Verizon and Comcast would have the power to interfere with our decisions about which news outlets – and therefore, what news – we should consume.

In 2015 we fought for net neutrality protections and against enormous odds, we won. Now we’re up against great odds again and need to fight back just as hard. The vote to slash critical net neutrality rules is on Thursday, December 14. If Chairman Pai hears from enough members of Congress who oppose his plan, we may be able to persuade him to stall his plan.

The ACLU is partnering with Fight for the Future and The Harry Potter Alliance to save net neutrality.
