As states pass a wave of laws barred non-neutral ISPs from providing services to state agencies, more than 100 US mayors have pledged to disqualify non-neutral ISPs from getting city contracts as well.
You can email your mayor to get them to join the pledge. Participating cities include NYC, PDX, Austin, San Antonio, KC, San Francisco, Baltimore, San Jose, Minneapolis, Stockton, Newark, Jersey City, Sioux City, SLO, Cambridge Mass, Akron, Rochester, Chapel Hill, Ithaca, Boise, Fargo, Richmond (VA), East Lansing, Albuquerque, Sheboygan, Birmingham (AL), Long Beach, and many, many more.
Tim Karr, senior director of strategy and communications for Free Press Action Fund, said in a statement that meanwhile local leaders are “forming a bulwark” to defend net neutrality. “On average, more than three city mayors are signing the Cities Open Internet Pledge each day, with more expected to join throughout the spring and summer,” he said.
