FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is against Net Neutrality and affordable internet access. What’s he for? Letting a racist media empire get even more reach and power.

Now some good news: The Senate has to reconfirm Pai or he’s out. If you haven’t already, call (413) 923-6120 and you’ll be automatically connected to your senator’s office.

When you make the call, you’ll hear a brief message from us before you’re connected to your elected officials. Here’s what you can say to them:

I’m calling to urge you to vote against the renomination of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai because of his attacks on Net Neutrality and the Lifeline program and his support for the Sinclair merger.

Time is running out: Call (413) 923-6120 today and urge your senators to fire Pai.

Thanks—

Lucia

It’s time for a break-up.

Any day now, the Senate will vote on whether to reconfirm FCC Chairman Ajit Pai — and we’re urging senators to dump him.

Since Pai joined the Commission, he’s worked to undo policies designed to protect internet users, communities of color and poor people. While he’s supposed to protect the public interest, he’s continuously voted against it and sided with the deep-pocketed corporations — like Verizon — that once employed him.

A vote for Pai is a vote for a corporate-controlled internet. Pick up the phone now and urge your senators to vote against Pai’s renomination. Call (413) 923-6120 and you’ll be automatically connected to your senator’s office.

Pai has made it clear that he doesn’t care about protecting the communication rights of everyday people. Time and time again he’s failed to stand up for those he’s sworn to serve. This is unacceptable. And now the Senate has the opportunity to intervene on the public’s behalf.

We don’t have a lot of time. Call (413) 923-6120 and tell your senators that a vote for Pai is a vote to:

• End the internet as we know it by destroying Net Neutrality protections.
• Let Trump’s favorite media empire Sinclair — known for its racist coverage and anti-Muslim “must-run” broadcasts1 — gain even more reach and power.
• Shut off phone and internet service for people who are struggling by attacking the Lifeline program.

Not a single senator should support that agenda.

Tell the Senate to stand up for what’s right and fire FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. (He does a better job of representing Verizon’s interests anyway.)

Call (413) 923-6120 to be automatically connected to your elected officials.

Thanks for all that you do—

P.S. Call (413) 923-6120 now, and tell your senators that it’s time to break up with FCC Chairman Pai. A vote for Pai = a vote to end the internet as we know it.
