Sign the Declaration of Internet Freedom
By Free Press / act.freepress.net

A group of more than 1,500 organizations, academics, startup founders and tech innovators has come together to produce a Declaration of Internet Freedom, a set of five principles that put forward a positive vision of the open Internet.  

Our goal: Get millions of Internet users to sign on to this Declaration. Build political power for Internet users to make sure that we get a seat at the table whenever, and wherever, the future of the Internet is being decided.

It's time to stop playing defense and start going on the offensive.

The open Internet is central to people’s freedom to communicate, share, advocate and innovate in the 21st century. But powerful interests want to censor free speech, block the sharing of information, hinder innovation and control how Internet users get online.

And all too often, people in power are making political decisions behind closed doors about how the Internet should operate  and they're doing this without the involvement of actual Internet users.

The result: policies that could close down the open Internet and destroy our freedom to connect.

What To Do

It’s time for us to reclaim the Internet for its users.
Take action now and sign the Declaration of Internet Freedom.
