The Senate vote on the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the FCC’s net neutrality repeal is coming as early as mid-May. To win, we still need to make sure that a handful of GOP senators vote on our side.

Thousands of small businesses across the country have signed an open letter asking Congress to support the CRA. And we need your help to get it into the hands of elected representatives.

On May 2nd, can you join with Internet users and small business owners to deliver the BusinessesForNetNeutrality.com open letter to congressional offices at 12 pm local time?

Right now there is no more important strategy in the fight to restore net neutrality than for small businesses to pressure Republican senators to vote for the CRA.

And with a House vote right around the corner, we need to reach as many members of Congress as possible. We know from experience that in-person deliveries at local offices get their attention.

At 12pm local time on May 2nd, you, small business owners, and fellow net neutrality advocates will hand-deliver the net neutrality open letter to members of Congress to get the attention of local reporters during national Small Business Week.

Can you join small businesses across the country on May 2nd for an open letter delivery at your lawmaker’s office? RSVP for one here.

Lawmakers are really responding to pressure from small businesses on this issue, so if enough Internet users and businesses show up in person, we could create game-changing pressure to win.
