  • 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.

  • 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.
