  • Tell Your Representative: Leave My Online Privacy Alone
    House Republicans are wasting no time with their attack on your online privacy. Backed by powerful media corporations, 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.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
