Net Neutrality Victory

Dear Tony,

You did it.

This morning the FCC voted to protect real Net Neutrality, doing what millions of people like you have called for: restoring the agency's authority to protect Internet users under Title II of the Communications Act.

It's an incredible victory that wouldn't have happened without every single phone call, email, rally, Facebook post, tweet, meeting with Congress and everything else you've done to protect Internet freedom.

Today we get to celebrate something really rare: a concrete win that everyday people made possible. You stood up to corporate giants and created a public policy that will actually protect the public.

This moment was more than 10 years in the making. The fight to protect the open Internet has united everyone — grassroots activists, technologists, new civil rights leaders, parents, teachers, students, musicians, artists and millions and millions of Internet users. We've proven that we're a force to be reckoned with in Washington.

Know this: Now that we've won this huge victory for the Internet, the cable and phone companies will be relentless in their efforts to knock it down. But Free Press has never backed down from a fight.

Whether in the courts or in Congress, the media or the streets, we will continue pushing, fighting and advocating for the strongest possible policies to protect the free and open Internet. Our message to the world is clear: Mess with the Internet, and you'll lose.

This isn't the end. This is the start of something huge.

Thank you for everything—

The whole Free Press team: Craig, Candace, Mary Alice, Julia, Joseph, Carrie, Sandy, Matt, Tim, Misty, Lindsy, Amy K., Amy M., Derek, Elizabeth, Hailu, Kimberly, Lauren, Lee, Rachel, Sara and Yesenia
