The Day We Fight Back

This Tuesday, February 11th is The Day We Fight Back (against mass surveillance), and we need your help.

We understand the United States to be a democracy, founded upon a Constitution that affords us critical rights, and governed by the rule of law.

Yet for years, the NSA has exploited secret legal interpretations to undermine our privacy rights -- thus chilling speech and activism, and thereby threatening to subvert the very underpinnings of our democracy itself.

This Tuesday, February 11th, dozens of major websites and organizations are joining together to demand an end to mass surveillance.  We're calling it, simply, The Day We Fight Back, and we need your help to make it as powerful as possible.

On Tuesday, February 11th, we are mobilizing thousands to call on Congress to:

    Pass the USA FREEDOM Act which would end the bulk collection of Americans' phone records, and institute other key reforms.
    Defeat the so-called FISA Improvements Act, which would entrench -- and potentially expand -- the spying.
    Create additional privacy protections for non-Americans.
    End to the NSA's subversion of encryption and other data security measures.
