Trump’s FCC has taken steps to do away with net neutrality, which would undermine equal access to the internet in our country. But the fight is far from over. We will get an update from two outstanding Bay Area leaders and activists about the attack on net neutrality; why net neutrality is so crucial for our democracy and must be defended; and what we can do in San Francisco to protect it at all levels of government.
