According to Public Knowledge, one of the backers of the protest, the September event will feature participants going to Capitol Hill to make their case, followed by "a Happy Hour to celebrate [their] hard work."

The next day the protest will move to the FCC for the monthly open meeting to "let the commissioners know how you feel about net neutrality."
