Our congressional briefing

We delivered our petitions to Rep. Darrell Issa!

Our congressional briefing

ana lucia,

Yesterday, we held a briefing for congressional staff about the bill that would stifle online innovation and free speech.

A whopping 200 Democratic and Republican staffers crowded the room and thousands of people watched online!

Plus, the top House Republican working on the pro-Internet side of this issue (Darrell Issa) dropped by, thanked us for our work, and accepted the petition — signed by you and over 155,000 others!

Can you take the next step and call your members of Congress — Representative Jackie Speier and Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer — and tell them you oppose this bill? Click here for the number and a script.

(Then, share the petition on Facebook. You can also watch our briefing here.)

Today, you’ve probably seen that tech giants like Craigslist and Wikipedia blacked out their sites in protest of the anti-Internet bill in Congress.

In solidarity, we are blocking our site too — and so have over 340 PCCC members who own small businesses or websites! And we’re flooding congressional phone lines right now.

We’ll keep up the pressure so Congress hears our voices. If you haven’t already, please call your members of Congress today.

Thanks!

— Jason Rosenbaum, Adam Green, Stephanie Taylor, Michael Snook, and the PCCC team
