In solidarity, Janis Kay for Alan, Deb, Mike F., Mike H., Dr. Bill, Dan, Kimberly, Bryan, and Shayna—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has been leading the struggle to keep the Internet free, working within a massive coalition of organizations and individuals from first responders to news outlets to activists like you. We’ve been fighting for a free and open Internet since the FCC ignored overwhelming public demands and rescinded the protections we need to keep the Internet free and fair. Finally, we have the National Net Neutrality legislation we’ve been waiting for!
Tell your Representative and Senators to cosponsor the Save the Internet Act. We need this common sense bipartisan legislation—sponsored by Representative Mike Doyle and Senator Ed Markey. Please click here now to tell your Senators and Representative: We Demand That Congress Acts Now To Keep The Internet Free!
The Save The Internet Act would restore the federal Net Neutrality protections approved during the Obama era, but that were repealed by the FCC under Chair Ajit Pai. We need to restore these basic standards that guaranteed that Internet service providers such as Verizon and AT&T must treat users and content providers fairly. If enacted, the FCC could not revoke or ignore this law. Please push lawmakers extra hard to pass the newly introduced, Save the Internet Act!
House lead sponsor Rep. Doyle explained that the Save the Internet Act would defend consumers and small businesses from “abusive online practices, and restore the free and open internet.” Click here to read more about the act.

Without a free Internet (Net Neutrality), our rights to access information and organize effectively are restricted. Without equal protection of our access to information, our ability to seek knowledge and our awareness of government and corporate activities are limited. Without this, our basic constitutional rights to “petition the government for a redress of grievances” are at risk.
Help PDA restore Net Neutrality, restore this essential right. Freedom of the press—including free and equal Internet access—reaches into every issue we care about: ending corporate rule, providing universal access to quality health care, stopping wars and occupations, fighting climate change, protecting election integrity, passing comprehensive and fair immigration reform, advocating for economic and social justice, curbing gun violence, and demanding equal rights for all people. Help PDA shine a light on abuses and speak up for those who need to be heard. Tell Congress to restore Net Neutrality now.
