FLAGSTAFF, AZ – On May 9th, Native Public Media will “go Red” with millions of others across the nation in demanding freedom on the Internet as part of the Red Alert for Net Neutrality campaign.
During May, the U.S. Senate is expected to vote on a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to block the Federal Communications Commissions’ repeal of Net Neutrality.
“All of us use the Internet for business or personal use. Without Net Neutrality, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will be able to block apps, slow websites, and charge extra and higher fees. As Go-Redders, we believe Americans, including Native Americans, will not be able to afford the Internet if we allow ISPs to control what we do online. Supporting the restoration of Internet protections is by far one of the most important things we can do today to ensure that a free and open Internet continues to exist,” states NPM President & CEO Loris Taylor.
The Go-Red campaign plans to raise nation-wide awareness about Net Neutrality and ensure that anyone who uses the Internet has a say about its future. Participating organizations will post Red Alert widgets on their websites starting May 9th, making it easier for constituents to join the campaign and in connecting with their Congressional representatives.
