Net neutrality, an act that requires all internet service providers to provide equal access to all online content, was repealed December 14th by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Teagan Roeder ‘18, student body president, is agitated by this decision and plans to take action with other students.
“I believe that the internet should be a free tool for the American people and the people of the whole world,” said Roeder. “This decision from the FCC harms the infrastructure of how the internet works.”
Roeder will be hosting a session where students can write letters to their representatives in the commons on December 20th, from 4:00-4:45. He will be providing letters to students who come to the event, but students can also bring their own materials if they want.
“I might even make muffins if I’m feeling up to it. ” Roeder said.
The event will be held in the commons, December 20, from 4:00 – 4:45. All students are welcome to attend.
