On August 31st the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit to block AT&T’s takeover of T-Mobile.  Blocking this merger was a major victory for communities of color, rural communities and America’s poor.  Help us thank the DOJ for listening to our concerns.

Call 1.888.638.1150 x1 and let them know what blocking this merger means to YOU and YOUR community.

If AT&T takes over T-Mobile, it will be a disaster for all mobile phone users -- especially people of color and low-income communities. Sign our petition telling the FCC and DOJ to block this takeover.
