Protest For Net Neutrality At Obama Fundraiser
On the campaign trail in 2007, candidate Obama visited Google headquarters in Silicon Valley and pledged to “take a back seat to no one” in his commitment to Net Neutrality.
Since then he has appointed two FCC chairmen — Julius Genachowski and Tom Wheeler — who have failed to live up to the president’s pledge.
On July 23, Obama will return to California for a big fundraiser and we want to remind him how much we all care about the open Internet. That’s why we’re holding a big rally in L.A. to get the message out.
WHERE: We’ll rally in the park at the Memorial Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library, 4625 W. Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90019 (Olympic and S Mullen Ave.)
PARKING: On street parking is available on Olympic. Los Angeles High School is across the street and spaces are available until 6:30 p.m.
Help us grab the president’s attention — RSVP today!
