Give Every Voice a Fighting Chance, Become a Digital Inclusion Champion!
Support full broadband access and adoption and defend an open Internet.
Across the Unites States, organizations based in, or working with, people of color, poor communities, and other marginalized groups, are raising their voices for rules that will defend an open Internet that is fast, affordable, and fair. We know that open networks will create economic opportunity for our communities, and ensure that every idea -especially those of artists, advocacy organizations, and small businesses- has a chance. FCC Chairman Genachowski, FCC Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Michael Copps, Senator Donna Edwards, and even President Obama agree.
But some Internet companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast argue that rules to protect an open Internet are uneccessary. They say limits to how they manage traffic will decrease their already padded profit margins. They say if their profit margins decrease, they won’t invest in broadband build out to poor communities. Our communities should not have to choose between broadband access and Internet fairness. If you represent an organization that cares about economic opportunity for marginalized communities and small businesses, download the pledge (English) (Spanish) to become a Digital Inclusion Champion. Type in your organizational information, and click here to email it to CMJ.
Lift your voice, encourage the Federal Communications Commission to defend an open Internet. Our livelihoods and our right to communicate depends on it.
TAKE THE PLEDGE NOW!
