Tell Congress to Protect Our Online Privacy Rights

Records of your online activity reveal a tremendous amount about you. While that kind of data is currently protected by federal rules, some members of Congress are trying to repeal those rules so your broadband provider can sell your sensitive Internet activity records to the highest bidder.

Location feature

Tell Congress to Protect Location Privacy

Your smartphone, navigation system, fitness device, and more know where you are most of the time. Law enforcement should need a warrant to access the information these technologies track.

Email feature

Tell Congress to Fix Email Privacy

Law enforcement should get a warrant to search through emails, Facebook messages, and any other electronic communications. Tell Congress to fight for our Fourth Amendment protections and pass the Email Privacy Act.

Act blueandblacklock

Tell Congress to investigate CBP social media monitoring

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently proposed to ask travelers from countries on the State Department’s Visa Waiver Program list to provide their “social media identifier." Handing over a list of social media accounts to the government undermines freedom of expression, international law, and individual privacy. Tell the U.S. Congress to investigate.

Please join us in demanding that HP say no to DRM.

Tell Justin Trudeau: You can free Saeed Malekpour, Web developer and political prisoner.

Saeed Malekpour is a Canadian developer who was seized from the streets of Tehran by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard in 2008. His crime?

Act small tpp

Stop the TPP

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would lock the United States into its current broken copyright rules and empower foreign corporations to sue us if we reform them. Vital components of U.S. law such as fair use and net neutrality are missing or non-binding in the TPP.

The TPP is bad for users’ rights both in the U.S. and abroad. Please call your representative and demand that they oppose the TPP.

Act stingray

Tell FCC to Enforce Its Rules Against Police Using Stingrays

For nearly 10 years, local police departments around the country have spied on cell networks using military grade surveillance tools in secret. This week, a coalition of civil rights groups lodged a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) seeking an enforcement action against the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) for using cell-site simulators—also known as IMSI-catchers or Stingrays—thousands of times since 2007 without warrants required by the U.S. Constitution, and without a license to use the electromagnetic spectrum required by the FCC.
