If you would like to join the campaign to call/tweet/email your Congressional representatives of the citizens of the US, see the links below for more information on how to reach out and have this discussion. You all use the internet, and what that looks like going forward is entirely dependent on how we communicate our opinions to the FCC and Congress. Speak on behalf of yourself and free speakers everywhere.
