  • What to do right now to help block it from becoming law.

Thursday, December 7 - TWO EVENTS
1. Nationwide Net Neutrality Protests
From the Verizon Protests website: "The Federal Communications Commission is expected to vote on its plan to kill net neutrality on December 14." Net neutrality "prevents big internet service providers (like Verizon) from charging extra fees, engaging in censorship, or controlling what we see and do on the web by throttling websites, apps, and online services."

The protests are focused on Verizon because "the new chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai, is a former top lawyer for Verizon, and the company has been spending millions on lobbying and lawsuits to kill net neutrality."

  • If you're uptown or in midtown, join the protest at the Verizon Bryant Park store at 125 W. 42nd Street, between 6th and 7th, at 5 p.m.
  • If you're downtown, join the protest at Verizon's corporate headquarters at 140 West Street, near the World Trade Center, at 5 p.m.

2. Weekly Impeach Protest Hosted by Rise and Resist
Federal Hall National Memorial
26 Wall Street
5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Rise and Resist is protesting Trump every Thursday until he's gone. This week's protest location, Federal Hall, was the site of an early victory for freedom of the press.
