The Battle to Save Net Neutrality (San Francisco)

  • Internet Archive 300 Funston Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94118 United States (map)

Net neutrality, the principle that broadband companies like Comcast and AT&T shouldn't pick winners and losers on the Internet, is under attack in Washington, DC.  The Trump Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is proposing to repeal the strong 2015 net neutrality rules, which are overwhelmingly popular with Americans all across the country, regardless of political affiliation.  At the same time, some members of Congress are pushing to put a weaker form of net neutrality into law and at the same time free broadband companies from FCC oversight.  Mozilla and the Internet Archive will host a panel to discuss how net neutrality promotes democratic values, social justice and economic opportunity, what the current threats are, and what the public can do to preserve it.
