Raise your voice against the PATRIOT Act

Last week, we announced that on February 3, we will gather Bill of Rights supporters from across the country in Washington, DC, to share concerns about domestic spying with members of Congress as they turn their attention, once again, to the PATRIOT Act. The lobby day will include a morning briefing, advice on how to talk to your members of Congress, sessions with issue experts, meetings with your senators and representative, and an afternoon debrief. 

Come to Washington on February 3 and tell your congressional representatives how important it is to you—their constituent—that they stand up for your constitutional rights.

Even if you can’t travel to the nation’s capital, you can still raise your voice to insist that the PATRIOT Act be amended to also include protections for constitutional rights.  Today, we’re launching a sign-on letter promoting amendments to incorporate into the PATRIOT Act long overdue civil liberties and transparency protections, including some from the JUSTICE Act proposed by Senator Feingold and opposed by the Obama administration. 

Sign this letter today to call on the President and your members of Congress to reject fear mongering and instead fulfill their oaths to defend the Constitution.

Many thanks for your continuing commitment to the Bill of Rights,

Shahid Buttar
Executive Director
