Save the Internet
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When Save the Internet formed, it asserted the idea that network neutrality needed to be protected by a "First Amendment" of the Internet. As the First Amendment to the United States Constitution includes protection of freedoms of speech and of the press, so would a proposed Internet first amendment protect network neutrality, which would allow for equal access to every website.
This online activist organization functions mainly as a source for public awareness and as a catalyst promoting civic action, such as petitioning Congress to support net neutrality. Previous petitions garnered as many as 1.6 million signatures.
