Let’s congratulate NJ’s new state Attorney General, Gurbir Grewal! And while we’re at it, let’s ask him to protect net neutrality!
GOAL: Protect our right to an open Internet.
DEADLINE: This week!
ACTION: Call or email NJ state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and ask him to join the multi-state lawsuit against the FCC, to restore Net Neutrality.
PHONE SCRIPT: I’m calling to congratulate AG Grewal on his appointment to Attorney General. As one of his first actions in office, I’d like to ask him to protect New Jersey’s right to an open Internet by joining New York and 20 other states in the lawsuit against the FCC to overturn the repeal of net neutrality rules.
EMAIL: I’d like to offer my congratulations to state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal on his appointment. As one of his first acts, I ask that he protect New Jersey’s right to an open Internet by joining New York, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia in the lawsuit against the FCC to overturn the repeal of net neutrality rules.
REASON: In December of 2017, the FCC voted along partisan lines to repeal net neutrality rules. 21 states and the District of Columbia immediately filed a lawsuit to overturn the repeal. New Jersey must join in this lawsuit to protect the right of New Jerseyans and all Americans to an open Internet. Net neutrality repeal gives major telecommunications companies an unprecedented level of control over how we use the Internet. Net neutrality preserves our right to communicate freely online. It means that ISPs must treat all traffic online as equal. Without net neutrality, you ISP can charge you more to access certain content online or, even worse, decide what content you’re able to access at all. Tell Congress not to allow the FCC to overturn net neutrality rules.
