My Senator Supports Net Neutrality, Does Yours?

A canned message shows people have spoken up in my state.

My senator responded to a letter I sent last month urging her to support net neutrality. She responded today with a somewhat canned message, which signals to me that many of my California neighbors also took the time to share their concerns with her. Yay!

Senator Harris gets it:

The internet is one of California’s greatest gifts to the nation, and to the world. As Californians, I believe we have a special responsibility to safeguard the internet’s freedom and openness.

In her letter, she also acknowledged the importance of the open internet for free speech and disadvantaged communities. Check, and check.
