We are the ACLU. Ask us anything about expanding broadband and restoring net neutrality // our right to a free, open, and accessible internet // how to ensure our internet is free, open, and accessible to all.
Since the FCC under Trump eliminated net neutrality in 2017, our previously free and open internet is now subject to corporate censorship. And millions of people already could not access broadband to begin with because it remains unaffordable and inaccessible to many communities, especially communities of color and those in rural or low-income areas.
Equitable access to a free and open internet depends on what we do right now. The ACLU is calling on President Biden to nominate a new FCC chair who will restore net neutrality protections and ensure broadband access for all. We’re also pressing Congress to pass the Accessible, Affordable Internet for All Act to bolster broadband efforts.
Chad Marlow, senior policy counsel and Kate Ruane, senior legislative counsel are here to break down why net neutrality and broadband are urgent priorities and how to fight for our right to a free, open, and accessible internet.
Questions? We’ll be here at 1pm ET on Friday, May 21 with answers.
