Common Cause for Common Ground

Phone and cable companies want to defeat net neutrality.

We can stop them.

Take Action Today

There's no doubt that the Internet has grown to be a powerful force for free speech, democratic participation and economic innovation.

But that growth may not continue unless Congress takes steps now to protect "net neutrality" -- the principle that keeps the Internet free and open.

Will you join with me and 1.6 million other Americans in speaking out for net neutrality?  Net neutrality legislation will keep the Internet free from blocking, censorship and discrimination by phone and cable companies.

Ask your member of Congress to support the Internet Freedom Preservation Act!

Companies like AT+T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner want to be Internet gatekeepers, deciding which websites go fast or slow, and which won't load at all.

And they're spending big bucks to get their way. The phone and cable companies have already spent more than $50 million to deploy an army of more than 500 lobbyists in Washington. They'd like to kill net neutrality once and for all.

That's why we need to send a strong and clear message that online discrimination will not be tolerated.

Don't let corporate giants dominate the debate over the future of the Internet: Make your voice heard today!

Urge Congress to protect an open, innovative and competitive Internet by passing the Internet Freedom Preservation Act! (H.R. 3458)
