Thousands of FreedomWorks activists will pressure select members of Congress to defend #InternetFreedom and uphold FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s “Restoring Internet Freedom” order during a nationwide Digital Day of Action on Monday, Feb. 26.
The Senate is one vote away from using the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to revive the Title II “Net Neutrality” regulations imposed by the Obama administration. Left-wing groups are planning to flood the Senate with calls and emails Tuesday, Feb. 27 to flip a Republican vote, and make this scenario a reality. FreedomWorks’ Digital Day of Action will beat them to the punch by 24 hours.
FreedomWorks’ Digital Day of Action will include:
- Continuous live stream events featuring members of Congress and policy experts on FreedomWorks’ Facebook and Twitter accounts
- Driving hundreds of thousands of emails, phone calls, and tweets from constituents asking select members of Congress to protect internet freedom and uphold the “Restoring Internet Freedom” order
- The campaign hashtags will be #InternetFreedom and #FreeTheNet
The online grassroots campaign will target the following Republican members of Congress:
- Sen. Susan Collins (ME)
- Sen. John Kennedy (LA)
- Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK)
- Sen. Dean Heller (NV)
- Sen. Dan Sullivan (AK)
- Sen. Cory Gardner (CO)
FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon commented:
“Congressional Democrats opposing the Restoring Internet Freedom order are fighting to bring back outdated regulations designed for the days of rotary telephones- what’s so progressive about that?”
“Grassroots America didn’t send Republicans to Congress to uphold damaging Obama-era regulations. Our Digital Day of Action is a reminder to congressional Republicans that their constituents are watching.”
The mission of FreedomWorks is to build, educate, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty, and the rule of law. For more information, please contact press secretary Jon Meadows at email@example.com.
