314 Action Releases Statement on FCC Net Neutrality Vote
(Washington, D.C.) -- Today, 314 Action Executive Director Joshua Morrow released a statement on the FCC’s vote to effectively end net neutrality.
Joshua Morrow released the following statement:
"The more than 400,000 members of 314 Action strongly condemn today’s vote by the FCC to effectively end net neutrality. Access to open internet without restriction is crucial not only to the furthering of science and innovation, but to democracy itself. We encourage our members to continue fighting and to not let this decision deter your efforts."
