For Immediate Release Net Neutrality Day of Action: Statement of Michael Copps former FCC Commissioner & Common Cause Special Advisor

Posted on July 11, 2017

The Trump Administration's fake net neutrality scheme is a ridiculous illustration of the price we pay for the outrageous influence of money in politics. Two years ago, millions of Americans took to the streets and to the internet to win historic open internet protections. They beat the likes of Comcast and Verizon then, and today they are mobilizing for victory again because there can be no compromising online free speech. 

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. We work to create open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
