Join us on July 12th for the Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality.
Right now, the FCC is planning to dismantle [Title II net neutrality protections](https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Common_carrier#/Telecommunications) that prevent companies like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from controlling what Internet users can see by throttling, blocking, and censoring sites and apps, or charging special fees that get passed along to consumers. Big Cable companies are pouring a ton of money into lobbying, misleading ads, and astroturf campaigns in an attempt to confuse the public. If they succeed, the Internet will never be the same.

Regardless of your beliefs (or even whether or not you live in the US), this issue materially impacts all Reddit users: online communities like /r/Videos wouldn’t exist without the principles of net neutrality that foster creativity and innovation on the web. We’ve worked together to defend the Internet before, now we need to do it again.
It’s vital that we all engage in conversations about how we as redditors can organize together for July 12th to make sure that decision-makers in Washington, DC listen to real Internet users, not just telecom lobbyists.
[Reddit](https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/6/15745974/net-neutrality-day-of-action-tech-companies) itself has agreed to participate in the day of action along with popular sites like [Amazon, Etsy, Kickstarter, Vimeo, GitHub, Mozilla, ](https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/) and [Pornhub](https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/pornhub-will-show-its-75-million-daily-visitors-why-net-neutrality-matters). [>30 other subreddits](https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/6g9pkl/reddit_lets_get_organized_more_than_30_subreddits/) have already joined too. It’s going to be big.
But there’s so much we can do together, from flooding the FCC and Congress with comments and phone calls to organizing in-person meetings with our lawmakers.
