Event Details

Ajit Pai, the Trump-appointed Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), wants to kill net neutrality and give control of the internet to companies like Comcast and AT&T. This move threaten economic opportunity, free speech and online dissent for communities of color.

Now he’s coming to San Francisco on Sept. 12 for a “fireside chat” with tech executives about expanding access and bridging the digital divide for underserved communities. But we aren’t fooled by lip service about expanding opportunity.

Join “Tech Workers Coalition” in telling Chairman Pai: There can be no conversation about opportunity online without real net neutrality. Our communities depend on a free and open internet to innovate, organize and communicate. Now more than ever, our democracy depends on our ability to connect with one another without censorship or interference.

Gather outside Galvanize, the venue where Pai will be speaking, with speakers, signs and visuals to send a message to press and the world: From tech workers to community organizers and beyond, the Bay Area demands real net neutrality.
