Join us for a rally to protect net neutrality in Oregon! 

The Trump admin dismantled important protections, but Oregon can still save net neutrality by passing HB 4155!

What is Net Neutrality? 
In December, the Trump FCC voted to dismantle policies that protected the open internet. What you can see on the internet, along with the quality of your connection, are at risk. If the FCC has its way, those companies could disfavor controversial viewpoints or smaller websites and favor the content providers who have the money to pay for better access.

Network neutrality is a consumer issue, but it is also one of the foremost free speech issues of our time. It is pretty much impossible to get through life without using the internet anymore, so it's essential that our free speech rights are protected both on- and offline. Freedom of expression isn't worth much if the forums where people actually make use of it are not themselves free.
