Tell Your Senators and Representative: All Whistleblowers Deserve Protection

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden remains in exile, unable to get a fair trial in the United States. After seven years in prison, Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning is now behind bars again for her principled stand against grand-jury abuses. NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake was subjected to years of harassment and bogus prosecution before a judge finally threw out the felony charges.

You can quickly send an email to both your senators and your representative, urging them to end the use of the Espionage Act against whistleblowers who provide information to journalists in the public interest. (Feel free to write your own message.)
