The PK Mobile Action Alert system has already been activated--read on for directions on how to look up the phone number for your Member of Congress.
On February 16th, Congress held a hearing on Net Neutrality where Members made known their intentions to repeal the FCC's recently introduced Net Neutrality rules. If passed, this repeal wouldn't just scrap the rules--it would also prevent the agency from taking action on this important issue in the future. While the FCC's rules are far from perfect, they do provide a framework under which the agency can protect consumers and punish bad actors. Without this framework, internet service providers will be free to discriminate against users, services and types of traffic at will.
Make no mistake: this will be a decisive vote. This is the only time that Congress will vote "yes or no" on Net Neutrality, so it's crucial that they vote the right way. Help us send a clear message to Congress: a vote for the repeal act is a vote against internet users.
We're working to coordinate a national day of action on the 17th, when we'll flood Congress with calls from Net Neutrality supporters. Here are three ways you can help:
1.) Call your member of Congress and express your support for Net Neutrality: Click here for directions on how to look up your member of Congress' phone number and what to say when you call.

Also, help us spread the word using Twitter: use the hashtag #InternetStrikesBack or simply click here to tweet your support for net neutrality.
3.) Sign our student letter: If you're a student, please sign our student letter to Congress. We'll deliver this letter to Members of Congress at the end of the month, in order to demonstrate that students all over the country support net neutrality.
* We promise to never share your phone number and to only send alerts via the PK Mobile Action Alerts system at the most crucial times.
