What we're doing...


There’s nothing more important to a functioning democracy than an informed, engaged, public. That’s why we work to protect a free and open internet and an independent and constitutionally-protected free press that reports the facts so voters have the information they need.

Media & Democracy Campaigns...

Broadband Access

We are fighting to connect all Americans to affordable broadband by pushing back against harmful mergers and advancing Lifeline modernization.

Freedom of the Press

A free press is a vital component of our democracy and holds our government accountable to the people. Now more than ever, we're fighting to protect media independence and the integrity of both professional and citizen journalism in the United States.

Media Consolidation

We must put the brakes on media monopolization and work towards innovative reforms that put consumers and everyday people first.

Net Neutrality

The open internet, or net neutrality, is the principle of online fairness. It enables everyone to share ideas, information and other content on the internet without throttling, censorship, or extra fees from big internet service providers.

Take Action

We Demand Democracy

Tell Congress: pass the For The People Act to improve access to voting, make redistricting fair, improve the integrity of our voting systems and get big money out of our elections.

End Gerrymandering Now

Voters should choose politicians, not the other way around! Together we can return the power to draw districts to We The People. Sign the pledge and learn how you can help.

Join with us to overturn the Citizens United decision and build a democracy in which every voice is represented, not just the voices of a few wealthy special interests.
