  • January 3, 2018 | To save net neutrality, we need to get every member of Congress to promise to vote to overrule the FCC vote. Use this page to track them, call them and tweet them.

    Soon we'll begin tracking which members of Congress have cosponsored a "Congressional Resolution of Disapproval" to overrule the FCC. Right now, we know which ones have come out against the FCC's plan, and which have supported it. We need to try to move all of them, but here are the priorities.

    Your representatives: These are your members of Congress. Start here.

  • Team InternetThese are the other members of Congress who've come out against the FCC plan. Thank them, and ask them to vote for the CRA.
  • UnknownThese are all the members of Congress whose stance we don't know yet. Ask them to vote for the CRA!
  • Team CableThese are the members of Congress who supported the FCC plan. We still might be able to move them

-OR-

While the FCC voted to end net neutrality, Congress can reinstate this critical regulation by passing a “resolution of disapproval” to undo the vote. Both Republicans and Democrats have spoken up against the FCC’s plan. Check out where your representatives stand <>, then use Free Press Action Fund’s call tool <>and script to give them a call.
