On Wednesday May 9, INCOMPAS joined internet companies, advocacy groups and lawmakers to promote the "Red Alert" campaign, turning the internet red to raise awareness around an upcoming Senate vote to reinstate the FCC's 2015 net neutrality rules.
Major websites - including Reddit, Tumblr, Etsy, Mozilla and others - urged people to contact their lawmakers and ask them to support strong net neutrality protections.
INCOMPAS participated in the Red Alert campaign by releasing two short videos on Twitter, which highlight overwhelming Republican support for net neutrality, including young Republican support, drawing attention to several polls.
Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) announced on the same day that Senate Democrats filed a discharge petition to force a vote on the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to disapprove the new rules in the Restoring Internet Freedom Order. The deadline for a Senate vote on the CRA is June 12, 2018, but it could take place as early as this week.
