- Tell Your Representative: Leave My Online Privacy Alone
House Republicans are wasting no time bringing the attacks on online privacy to the floor for a vote. In fact, S.J. Res. 34 is scheduled to be debated as early as Monday tonight. If the House passes S.J. Res. 34, it will take only Trump's signature to eliminate FCC rules adopted last year that prohibit phone and cable companies from selling your private data (such as your web-browsing history) to advertisers and other companies without your consent. This is a bill that benefits only large corporations like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon — and at our expense. It's inexcusable for Congress to exploit our personal information like this.
- Pick up the phone now and call Congress. We can't let it undermine our online privacy.
- Free Press has made it easy for you to find your representative's direct line here.
- The Electronic Frontier Foundation has additional resources here.
- Learn more and share the call the action with your networks by using the #BroadbandPrivacy hashtag
- Tell your lawmaker you support all means necessary to Stop Gorsuch
After Senate Democrats indicated they are willing to filibuster the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, they need your help urging them to hold the line on that effort.
- Call your U.S. Senators today and tell them you oppose Gorsuch. If they've already committed to join the filibuster, congratulate them (or send them flowers: #FilibusterFlowers)
- Share your opposition using the #WeObject and #StopGorsuch hashtags on social media
- Read the Indivisible Guide's "Supremely Extreme: Filibuster Gorsuch" resource page. And more here.
- Demand an independent commission to investigate possible Trump team ties with alleged Russian interference in last year's election
Amid the ongoing and bizarre developments in the controversy that has engulfed the White House and Capitol Hill, the call for an independent body to investigate these serious and complex issues has reached a new zenith.
- Call your member of Congress (MoC) and tell them you support an independent comission or special prosecutor. (Sample script here.)
- Tell your MoC to back Rep. Adam Schiff's demand for independent commission and that you support the call by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) "for a total and complete shutdown of any
@realDonaldTrump agenda item" the facts are established and made public
- Follow and share on the #IndependentCommission and #FollowtheFacts hashtags on social media
