The Groundswell to Keep the Internet Open and Free

The Groundswell to Keep the Internet Open and Free

Encourage lawmakers to defend the FCC's historic 2015 decision to adopt the Open Internet Order.

Why is this important?

Two years ago, millions of us rose up in a movement to protect the open Internet -- and we won. Net neutrality keeps the Internet an open platform for people of all faiths and backgrounds to communicate, create, and organize online. Today the Internet is a space where all of us -- no matter the content of our beliefs, color of our skin, size of our wallets -- have an equal voice. The Internet has become the prophetic platform of the 21st century. Through online actions, we have protected sons and daughters from deportation, uplifted communities in the aftermath of mass shootings, changed federal policy on hate crimes, told untold stories, and much more. We have showed up for one another, as people of faith and moral fiber, in life-giving ways.

But today, President Trump's appointee announced that he will overturn net neutrality rules. We vow to be part of the resistance. In this critical time, we need net neutrality now more than ever to fight and defend the future of our democracy. Our marches, vigils, petitions, and calls to action depend on organizing on an open Internet.

So today, we vow to continue to champion faith and moral voices in the fight to protect the open Internet as a moral imperative. We, as people of many faiths and backgrounds, ask lawmakers to do the right thing as a moral imperative. Please sign and share this now.
