Act to Save Net Neutrality

December 12, 2017

This Thursday, the FCC is expected to vote on a proposal from Chairman Ajit Pai that would rollback the strong, enforceable net neutrality protections established in 2015. 

ILA is one of more than 200 groups that have signed a joint letter to House and Senate committee leaders. Many libraries are among the signatories. 

The American Library Association has provided a list of things you can do this week to support Net Neutrality: 

  1. Put the pressure on Congress. If you have not yet done so, contact your members of Congress.
  2. Join Break the Internet Day. 
  3. Join online protests on December 13 and 14 with some suggested media messages: 
  • Hey @AjitPaiFCC – America’s 120,000 libraries depend on equitable and robust access to the internet to serve our communities. We need #netneutrality!
    • .@FCC – Our libraries’ digital collections, podcasts, video tutorials, and more rely on an open internet. @AjitPaiFCC, keep #netneutrality!
      • #netneutrality is the First Amendment of the internet. @FCC, please protect the right to read, create and share freely without commercial gatekeepers.
      • OR tell us a story about what net neutrality means for your library and tag @ALALibrary, @FCC, @AjitPaiFCC
