I'd like to start a discussion—what implications does Trump's election
combined with Republican dominance in Congress have for the movement's
public policy efforts?
It would seem that, at the very least, net neutrality, intermediary
safe-harbor, and perhaps the 2018 copyright expiration are at risk. I
figure a proactive approach would be best—we should move fast to reach out
to Congresspeople to make the effects of such legislation known to them
before it gets introduced.
At Wikimedia DC we've visited Congressional staff in the past, and we
could certainly do it again. What else can we do? What current WMF policy
activities or connections can we extend? What are EFF and the policy arms
of Google, Facebook, etc. thinking about right now?
