Long story short: tell our FCC to bring back net neutrality, and tell big corporations to stop funding ALEC. Use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs to communicate your will.
Demand Progress helps you tell our Federal Communications Commission (or FCC) to bring back net neutrality, the principle that forces big telecom corporations to deliver all data with the same priority, and prevents those corporations from herding you into junk news ghettos or delivering corporate “partner” content before the content you want. This is why folks all across the political spectrum support net neutrality! Our government didn’t make net neutrality the law of the land until 2015, but corporations hesitated to violate its principles before then, and have only violated its principles since the Trump FCC’s 2017 repeal in ways that seem to benefit consumers – by packaging Netflix or Disney + for free with new accounts, for example. That might seem like a good thing, until you decide you don’t like Netflix anymore and have to pay extra for something like Hulu. So let’s make big telecom corporations do right by all of us again.
Daily Kos helps you tell big corporations to stop funding the notorious American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC. Voter ID laws, Stand Your Ground laws that never seem to protect Black folks the way they protect white folks, criminalizing protest – these are just some of the evil works of ALEC over the last decade-plus, but ALEC would starve to death without corporate funding, and our efforts over the years have already induced over 100 big corporations to drop ALEC, but there are lots of other big corporations in America still funding ALEC, not least among them Pfizer, Chevron, Blue Cross, Eli Lilly, Anheuser-Busch, UPS, FedEx, and, of course, the Koch Brothers. And don’t buy the BS line that these corporations only ally with ALEC for “economic reasons.” If anything, that’s even worse!
