Border act 1

Demand Border Agents Get a Warrant Before Digital Searches

Email Congress today and tell your lawmakers to support the Protecting Data at the Border Act (S. 823/H.R. 1899), a bill to require that border agents get a warrant based on probable cause to search our digital devices at the border.

No California Data for Religious Registries: Support S.B. 31

California must not be complicit in any attempt by the federal government to create lists or registries of individuals based on their religious beliefs. In response to proposals floated by the Trump administration to create a so-called “Muslim registry,” California has introduced legislation to create a legal firewall against sharing state and local government data that the federal government could use to violate our right to religious freedom. Support S.B. 31 today.
