Tell Congress: Stop the Patriot Act!

Congress

Congress has the chance to block the Trump administration from spying on protesters and all of our internet search and browsing history. It’s time to stop the Patriot Act.

Petition to Congress:

The Patriot Act has undermined civil liberties and personal privacy since its inception. The mass surveillance authorized under the Patriot Act has never been shown to be useful in preventing terrorist attacks. Instead the Patriot Act has enabled a national surveillance dragnet of all US persons, and under the Trump administration can be weaponized in this intensely political moment to spy on Black Lives Matter civil rights protesters, as well as collecting internet search and browsing history without needing a warrant. We demand you take every measure possible to NOT reauthorize the Patriot Act.
