Small businesses will be among those hurt most by the loss of net neutrality, but they can also play a key role in saving it. Thousands of small business owners from across the nation have signed on to our open letter to Congress in support of net neutrality. On July 19th, 2018, many of these small business owners will gather at the offices of their Congressional Representatives to hand-deliver this letter.
If you're a small business owner, sign on to our letter demanding Congress protect competition and free markets on the Internet.
Dear Member of Congress,
We are companies who rely on the open Internet to grow our business and reach customers online. We are asking Congress to issue a “Resolution of Disapproval” to restore net neutrality and the other consumer protections that were lost when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to repeal the 2015 Open Internet Order in December 2017.
Users and businesses need certainty that they will not be blocked, throttled or charged extra fees by Internet service providers. We cannot afford to be left unprotected while Congress deliberates.
We will accept nothing less than the protections embodied in the 2015 order. Please ensure the FCC keeps its tools to protect consumers and business like ours.
Thank you for considering our views.
Thousands of businesses have signed the letter to support the CRA to save net neutrality. Will your business join us?

Be friendly and polite, note the number of businesses in their district that have signed, and ask them to make sure the lawmaker gets it. Reiterate the ask of the letter: we want the Congress member to support the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality.
