Is Tom Wheeler afraid of us?
Despite the overwhelming opposition to his Internet rules — and maybe because of the overwhelming opposition — the FCC chairman hasn't shown any interest in meeting with the public face to face.
Instead, he's holding a few roundtables featuring hand-picked experts — including Free Press' own Matt Wood and several of our allies.
This is a good start, but it's not enough.
This is why Free Press has teamed up with Fight for the Future and other allies for an action outside the FCC on Sept. 16. Are you in?
As the amazing success of this week's Internet Slowdown1 shows, people around the country are fighting to save Net Neutrality. And we will keep pushing until Wheeler agrees to leave his Washington bubble and hold public hearings.
What: Tell the FCC to get out of Washington and hold public hearings
Thanks for all that you do—
Candace, Mary Alice and the rest of the Free Press team
P.S. Maybe protests aren’t your thing. Could you help fuel our campaign to save Net Neutrality with a donation of $10 (or more) today? Thank you!
