We urgently need to email U.S. Representatives Zoe Lofgren, Eric Swalwell, and Lou Correa. These California Democrats voted with Big Tech and against online platform accountability during the June 23 & 24, 2021 Judiciary Committee hearing on antitrust legislation designed to reign in the power and influence of companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon.

Most Democrats and some Republicans voted for them. But the tech industry lobbied hard against them, and California lawmakers caved in to this pressure. We need to make sure Congress Members Lofgren, Swalwell, and Correa hear loud and clear that siding with Big Tech over their constituents and the interest public is not acceptable.
