Free Press fights for your rights to connect and communicate.
We’re working to create a world where people have the information and opportunities they need to tell their own stories, hold leaders accountable, and participate in policymaking. We fight to save the free and open Internet, curb runaway media consolidation, protect press freedom, and ensure diverse voices are represented in our media.
We’re leading the movement to save Net Neutrality, and we helped push the FCC to adopt the strongest protections the agency’s ever enacted. This means that broadband providers can’t carve the Internet into fast and slow lanes — and it’s a huge win for free expression online.
Comcast wants to control the future of the Internet, and we’re fighting hard to stop this behemoth from taking over Time Warner Cable. We’re also working to curb mass government surveillance and restore Americans’ privacy rights online.
All of this connects to our work to safeguard press freedom: You can’t have a free press without a truly free and open Internet. Free Press fights for the First Amendment rights not only of journalists at incumbent outlets but also bloggers, freelancers and those who use their smartphones to record news as it’s happening — including protests and police actions.
