May 1, 2018 |  The word is out: The Senate will be voting in mid-May on the CRA resolution to overturn the FCC’s disastrous repeal of Net Neutrality.

The CRA resolution is Congress’ best chance to stop companies like AT&T and Comcast from controlling what you do and see online — including potentially censoring political speech and crushing movements for racial, gender and economic justice.

Right now 50 senators are publicly supporting the CRA — and we need to keep the pressure up in order to win. We’re one vote short of winning in the Senate, and if we can pull this off, it will create huge momentum for our battle in the House.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Take%20Action%20Today%20button_0.jpg We’re planning a day of protests on May 14 outside the offices of members of Congress who haven't signed on to the CRA. Can you help out? 

There’s no reason any member of Congress should fail to protect Net Neutrality.

The open internet has the power to disrupt gatekeepers. And it’s enabled marginalized communities — especially people of color — to tell our own stories, pursue economic opportunities and fight for justice.

People from across the political spectrum have spoken, and they haven’t minced words: No one wants some of the most hated companies in the United States to control the most important communication and organizing tool of our time.
