RootsAction: Connect. Act. Grow.
The Trump administration wants in. In your home, in your phone, inside your computer. They’re teaming up with Mitch McConnell to make it happen.

Next week, Mitch McConnell is hoping to ram through a reauthorization of the Patriot Act. He has three amendments to give the Trump administration even more power to spy on Americans without a warrant. But privacy advocates will have three amendments of their own to stop them.

It’s going to be a showdown between us and the Trump administration, with our civil liberties and our democracy hanging in the balance. That’s why your Senators need to hear from you, right now!

Congress was supposed to vote on the Patriot Act back in March, before the nation went into the coronavirus stay-at-home orders. But Trump and Mitch faced a huge roadblock: activists like you and many members of Congress. Thanks to your advocacy, McConnell failed to muster the votes needed to extend the Trump administration’s spying powers. But they’re determined to push it through now, while everyone is rightly focused on fighting the coronavirus.

There’s only one shot at this. Our allies in Congress are putting together three crucial reform amendments. But with so little time left before this important vote, your senators need to hear that you expect them to support the amendments that will stop the Trump administration from abusing its powers.
