AUG 26: Join a National Day of Action for #InternetForAll
On Wednesday, August 26, join education activists and organizations across the country to demand #InternetForAll.
School is starting up around the country but kids are stuck at home, and 15 million of them are #LoggedOut because they don’t have a decent internet connection. This is a moment for national urgency and leadership.
Our kids can’t wait.
How Can I Get Involved?
Check out the digital toolkit below. All activists and partners can use these tweets, shares and graphics to take to social media and demand leaders at every level — from the FCC chairman to the local mayor — give this issue the urgent attention it requires.
Make sure to use the #InternetForAll and #LoggedOut hashtags on your social media!
In addition, activists around the country are staging in-person and online actions in their local areas. Expect actions in California, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Philadelphia, D.C., Atlanta and Kentucky, with more in the works.
If you want to know more about how you can get involved in fighting for our students to have the access they need and deserve, use the contact form on this page to let us know.

Join the Day of Action!
School is starting and 15 million students still need internet access at home for online learning! It is the job of the FCC to ensure access in this crisis, but Chairman Ajit Pai would rather serve the interests of the broadband companies than the needs of the most vulnerable children. We need #InternetForAll!
Join the day of action by sharing out any of the tweets, statuses and images below on Wednesday, August 24.
