July 12 communities speak up for Net Neutrality

The conversation is starting – or maybe continuing – on Net Neutrality on July 12. Here’s the word from the Center for Media Justice

On July 12, 2017, major Internet companies like Amazon, Etsy, Kickstarter, Mozilla, and reddit along with over 25 advocacy and civil rights organizations, Internet users, and online communities will come together to stand up against the FCC’s attack on net neutrality.

Will you join us in an Internet-wide Day of Action to save the open Internet?
CMJ and MAG-Net are working with a broad network of organizations fighting for net neutrality to provide tools to make it easy for your friends, family and followers to take action.
If we lose net neutrality, we could soon face an Internet where people of color and community organizers fighting for justice are forced into a slow lane online, while deep-pocketed companies who can afford expensive new “prioritization” fees have special fast lane access to Internet users – tilting the playing field in their favor. That’s why we need your help on July 12.
