Today, net neutrality supporters and small business owners gathered at nearly 70 Congressional offices across the country demanding that their representatives sign on to the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to reverse the FCC’s wildly unpopular repeal of basic open Internet protections.

The protests come amid growing outcry for Congress to act to reverse the FCC’s resoundingly unpopular repeal of net neutrality protections, which officially went into effect on June 11th. Rep Mike Coffman (R-CO) just became the first GOP member of the House of Representatives to support a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that would reverse the FCC’s decision, creating massive pressure for other members of Congress to follow suit.
