Tell Rep. Lee to Support Net Neutrality: 

(202) 225-2661

The full House of Representatives is about to cast a crucial vote on
Internet freedom. 

Here are two things you can do in the next five minutes to help stop
Congress from handing control of the Internet over to the nation's largest
telephone and cable companies: 

1. Call your representative: 

Ask Representative Barbara Lee to support legislation that would protect Net
Neutrality -- the principle that keeps the Internet free and open. 

Rep. Barbara Lee
(202) 225-2661 

Urge Representative Lee to support Internet freedom by voting for a Net
Neutrality amendment (either H.R. 5417 or H.R. 5723) to the larger
communications bill called the COPE Act (H.R. 5252). 

The COPE Act is riddled with problems, the biggest of which is the lack of
genuine Net Neutrality protections. Tell Representative Lee to oppose any
telecommunications law that doesn't contain meaningful and enforceable Net

2. Help fight telco misinformation: 

More than a million Americans have already voiced their support for Internet
freedom. But companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast are spending tens of
millions of dollars to drown out the public outcry. Their propaganda blitz
includes local TV and print ads and canned telephone appeals designed to
paint Net Neutrality as an anti-consumer regulation -- even though every
major consumer group says it is the best way to protect consumer choice.

Some tips when calling: 

1. Make sure the staffer understands that you're urging your representative
to "vote in favor of an enforceable network neutrality amendment to the COPE

2. If they ask for more details, you can urge your representative to support
either the bipartisan Sensenbrenner-Conyers Net Neutrality legislation (H.R.
5417), which passed the House Judiciary Committee two weeks ago or the
Markey Net Neutrality Bill (H.R. 5273). We expect one of these to be offered
as an amendment to COPE.
