  • Net Neutrality


    CONGRATULATIONS, everybody! We only have 10 days to fight the FCC & the repeal of #NetNeutrality!

    Thanks to John Oliver there’s a SUPER easy way to do this
    Do you enjoy Netflix? Do you find yourself spending too much time on FB? If net neutrality goes away, our Internet bills go up and we give power to companies like Comcast and Spectrum.

    Here’s what you can do - takes less than a minute:
    1. Go to
    (the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)
    2. Click on the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom)
    2. Click on “express”
    3. Be sure to hit “ENTER” after you put in your name & info so it registers.
    4. In the comment section write, “I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs.”
    5. Click to submit, done. - Make sure you hit submit at the end!
