Today is The Day We Fight Back against mass surveillance, and we want you to be a part of it. Click here to help fight for fundamental privacy rights by participating in this this day of action.
We live in a democracy -- governed by the rule of law and founded upon a Constitution that affords us critical rights. But mass surveillance programs run by the NSA have undermined our privacy and civil rights, chilling free speech, hiding their activities, and subverting the very core of our democratic institutions.
Today, this February 11th, more than 6,000 major websites and organizations are joining together to demand an end to mass surveillance. We're calling it, simply, The Day We Fight Back -- and we need your voice to make today as big as possible.
Internet users and businesses are mobilizing to send Congress a clear message:
- Pass the USA FREEDOM Act to put an end to bulk collection of Americans' phone records, and institute other key reforms.
- Vote down the FISA Improvements Act, which would entrench -- and potentially expand -- government spying.
- Expand privacy protections for non-Americans.
- Stop the NSA from weakening encryption and other data security standards.
And while you're there, grab an image to share on social media. Tweet your action and ask for support. Install the Day We Fight Back banner on your site, asking your visitors to take action too.
