Dear Senator,

I'm urging you to support S.2992 - American Innovation and Choice Online Act.

Big tech platforms abuse their monopoly power to to stifle competition, which leaves internet users with less choices for the services they use online. This bill would restore competition by preventing tech monopolies from "self preferencing" on their own products at the expense of competitors.

We need this bill to pass before the August recess. Can you tell Chuck Schumer to bring it to the floor?

We can help them get the message by flooding their inboxes and voicemail.

Monday April 4th is Antitrust day. If you're in the US, call your representatives and demand passage of American Innovation and Choice Online Act. It's a bipartisan bill that restricts the anti-competetive tactics of big tech platforms.
