Your advocacy is needed! As was expected, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman shared a plan to eliminate net neutrality. The FCC is scheduled to vote on the plan on December 14. The FCC is not accepting public comment, but we can put pressure on Congress to strongly disapprove the proposal.
To take action, visit the American Library Association’s (ALA) advocacy engagement and contact your members of Congress. A pre-written letter is provided and you can personalize your email to make it more effective. If you prefer to call, you can use Engage to identify your members of Congress and obtain their contact information. Additional background information may also be found at advocacy engagement link.
ALA is seeking disapproval from all members of Congress, but has a particular interest in those who serve on committees that have oversight for the FCC—the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. Please note that Representative Sarbanes serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Please encourage others to contact Congress, too. Thank you in advance for your advocacy efforts!
