I couldn't have imagined

The OpenMedia team works hard to amplify your voices—and I think we’re getting good at it—but I need your help if OpenMedia is to continue to play this role. Please join us now.

In just a few days, I’m making a presentation that will amplify your pro-Internet voices and bring them directly to officials behind the most powerful trade block in history. It’s honestly pretty intimidating.

That is why I’m writing you today: I’m asking that you please stand with me by becoming an Ally – a monthly contributor to OpenMedia.

My life has been a whirlwind as of late. When I started OpenMedia, I couldn’t have imagined that our community would stop big telecom companies in their tracks, force politicians to change course and respect the open Internet, and pressure international bureaucrats to listen to Internet users.

The OpenMedia team travels far and works hard to amplify your voices – and I think we’re getting good at it. Yet I’m humble enough to know that I need your help if we are to continue to play this role.

This is the moment for you to join us. Generous supporters have pledged to match your contribution every single month if you become a monthly contributor during our December Allies Drive – starting now.

Anti-Internet forces see that we’re winning, and they’re coming back at us with a vengeance, taking the fight to control the Internet to an international scale. I need you to help us stay strong. Please don’t let them take away all that we have accomplished together.

With hope for our connected future,

Steve Anderson, on behalf of your OpenMedia team

P.S. Before this matching funds support for our December Allies Drive, I didn’t know how OpenMedia would continue mobilizing this community. Giant telecom companies and repressive regimes still have so much more power on their side. Let’s keep working to change that.
