We are political activists and policy experts fighting to prevent the government from spying on your Internet activity without a warrant. Ask us anything!
You’ve probably read some recent headlines on r/technology and r/news about the US Senate voting to allow the American government to continue spying on everyone’s Internet activity without a warrant. Unfortunately, it’s 100% true and it’s 1,000% awful. But we have a chance to stop it from happening. Support from tens of thousands of people across America convinced House leadership to schedule a vote on important privacy protections this Wednesday.
If you want to help save Internet privacy, you can visit SaveInternetPrivacy.org where you can send an email to your lawmakers asking them to save Internet privacy. You can also call Nancy Pelosi’s office directly 1 (202) 930-8115 and ask her to save Internet privacy by supporting the Wyden-Daines amendment.
There’s a lot of momentum behind this political movement. Tech companies like Reddit, Mozilla, and Twitter have all signed on to an open letter demanding that Congress support common-sense privacy protections. And a lot of lawmakers really want this amendment to pass. To make that happen, they need to know that this issue is very important to a lot of people just like you and me. So visit SaveInternetPrivacy.org now and tell them how you feel.
