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...

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.

Media Consolidation

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

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.

Broadband Access

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

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."

Overturn Citizens United

Together, we can build a democracy in which every voice is represented, not just the voices of a few, wealthy special interests.
