Small Businesses Say Keep Our Care

Demand the restoration of net neutrality protections today!
Last December, the FCC dismantled net neturality protections for businesses and consumers. The rules prevented internet service providers from blocking certain content, throttling speeds and prioritizing access to consumers to businesses willing to pay higher fees.
This puts small businesses and startups at a disadvantage when competing with larger businesses that have the ability to pay for their websites to be prioritized by internet service providers.

Protect Small Business from Predatory Lending in Colorado
As a small business owner, I know how important affordable loans are to helping local businesses grow and thrive. Unfortunately, too many small business owners are unable to take the next step to improve their business – like investing in new technology or hiring more employees – because they are unable to take out a loan. What’s more, recent efforts to raise interest rates would make it even harder for small business owners to access the loans they need.
Show Your Commitment to Opportunity Youth!
As small business owners, we are committed to addressing this challenge that affects our companies, the communities we work in and our entire country. We strongly believe in developing new sources of skilled entry-level talent, expanding opportunities for youth who are out of school and out of work, and investing in our communities. Today, we pledge to create meaningful opportunities for our nation’s youth.
