WASHINGTON D.C. (Hypebot) — One U.S. Senator’s vote is all that is needed to help stop the repeal of net neutrality. Today, Tuesday, February 27th, please join us and other net neutrality supporters and major web platforms in Operation: #OneMoreVote, a mass day of online and offline action.
50 senators have already come out in support of a Congressional Review Act (CRA), which would overturn the FCC’s December 14th decision and restore net neutrality protections. The goal of today’s Operation: #OneMoreVote is to secure the final vote needed.
Internet users, small businesses, online communities, public interest groups and popular websites will harness their reach to flood lawmakers with phone calls and emails from constituents, while high-traffic websites will help sound the alarm with prominent alerts encouraging visitors to take action. Offline, net neutrality supporters will gather outside 8 key Senate offices across the country, as well as at a rally outside the Senate in Washington, DC.
Reddit, Tumblr, Etsy, Medium, Vimeo, Imgur, Namecheap, DuckDuckGo, Private Internet Access, Fiverr, Patreon, KnowYourMeme and Sonos are among the companies that have announced their participation, along with groups like Consumer Reports, the ACLU, Common Cause, Engine, CCIA, Change.org, National Hispanic Media Coalition, and Creative Commons.
