We spend so much of our lives online — from work and shopping to social networking and entertainment. But a Washington appeals court recently overturned crucial policies that ensure a fair and open internet for everyone. Net neutrality rules ensure a level playing field and prevent big corporations like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T from blocking content, increasing your bill and lowering your connection speed.
The internet has been a revolutionary tool that provides equal opportunity to elevate one’s voice, engage in civic debates and organize for change. You will have the opportunity to discuss the current challenges to an open internet with leading experts and learn how you can get involved in the fight to save the internet.
