On the campaign trail in 2008, candidate Obama visited Google headquarters in Silicon Valley and pledged to "take a back seat to no one" in his commitment to Net Neutrality.
Since then he has appointed two FCC chairmen — Julius Genachowski and Tom Wheeler — who have failed to live up to the president's pledge.
On July 23, Obama will return to California for a big fundraiser and we want to remind him how much we all care about the open Internet. That's why we're holding a big rally in L.A. to get the message out.
Here are the details:
WHAT: Rally for Net Neutrality
WHEN: Wed., July 23, 4:00–7 p.m.
WHERE: Hancock Park neighborhood (I'll send you the exact address once you RSVP.)
RSVP: Click here: http://bit.ly/1ktpeyJ if you can make it.
BRING: Pink signs or banners to show your support for the open Internet.
With the FCC considering rules that would gut Net Neutrality protections, it's critical that Obama stand up for the open Internet. Now is the time to take to the streets and show the world that we refuse to settle for anything less than real Net Neutrality.
