Put a Stop to Illegal Spying

dayfightback_400.jpgThe chorus of voices protesting the NSA’s out-of-control intelligence gathering is getting louder. Today is “The Day We Fight Back,” a national day of activism to protest the illegal domestic surveillance and data collection the NSA has been carrying out.

A coalition of activist groups, organizations and companies are encouraging people to contact their members of Congress in support of the USA Freedom Act, which would end the bulk collection of communications from ordinary Americans and increase safeguards, oversight and transparency.

Use the form below to contact your member of Congress and join with millions of others who want to take back their privacy and civil liberties.

Message

Dear [Decision Maker],

I urge you to support the USA FREEDOM Act (S. 1599, H.R. 3361), legislation that will help protect Americans' privacy and civil liberties and provide much-needed oversight of our surveillance activities.



Specifically, I join with the Project On Government Oversight to support the USA Freedom Act that would end the NSA's bulk collection of communications of ordinary Americans. The bill provides greater safeguards for surveillance programs, including requiring a court order for using any information collected. The bill also would create a Special Advocate to focus on the protection of privacy rights and civil liberties before the secret surveillance court (FISA Court). It also requires declassification of important FISA Court decisions and more detailed public reporting about the numbers and types of FISA orders that are issued.

While even more needs to be done, the USA Freedom Act is certainly a step in the right direction. For example, meaningful intelligence community whistleblower protections need to be enacted to prevent further large scale leaks.

Please join the impressive bipartisan coalition in Congress that supports this critical reform. As President Obama lays out his plans, I urge you to keep in mind an important part of your plan: passage of the USA FREEDOM Act.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
