Today, the Internet is a place where all Americans have an equal voice — no matter the color of our skin, size of our wallets, or content of our beliefs. Right now,a proposal in Washington would end the Internet as we know it. It will create fast lanes for those who pay — and slow lanes for the rest of us. We will no longer have an equal chance to express ourselves, connect with one another, and stand against injustice, as our faiths teach us. Our faith institutions will also suffer. But we can change that.
In the coming weeks, we can persuade the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to support the President's plan to protect a free and open Internet. Find out what’s at stake for faith leaders and communities — and what you can do. Join us for a special webinar led by national experts on faith and public policyCherylLeanza(United Church of Christ, OC Inc) andValarie Kaur(Stanford Law School; Auburn Seminary).
