Bay Area Speaks: A People's Hearing on the Future of the Internet
City Hall, Room 305
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:



When it comes to the Internet, Californians are pioneers. The Bay Area has been very vocal in the national fight for Net Neutrality, and there's a reason: The open Internet is why so many trailblazing new artists, technologies and businesses were born in this state. On Nov. 20, concerned Internet users and a coalition of advocacy organizations are gathering at San Francisco City Hall to hold a people's hearing on the future of the Internet.

The Net Neutrality debate is moving fast on the heels of a record-breaking summer where millions of people spoke out against an FCC proposal that would permit large Internet providers to charge fees for access to parts of the Web.

Organizations including ColorOfChange.org, Common Cause, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Free Press, the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net), and the Media Alliance are inviting the diverse communities of the Bay Area to speak out and join local leaders, policy experts, technologists, and elected officials to testify at City Hall about why the future of the Internet matters to us.

This event is free and open to the public.

An ASL interpreter will be translating the hearing.

5:30 p.m.: Rally outside
6 p.m.: Doors open
7 p.m.: Hearing begins

Join us for a rally outside City Hall at 5:30 p.m., and then come in at 7 p.m. to make your voice heard. Share your story about why the Internet must remain open and free!
