Partnership for Civil Justice

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund is actively pursuing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) demands to the NSA, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the FBI for documents related to the identification of mass surveillance programs, their scope, operating guidelines and procedures, retention of data collected through such programs, and internal evaluations attempting to justify these programs' legality and constitutionality. The PCJF previously uncovered and exposed the role of the FBI and Department of Homeland Security in using their "anti-terrorism" authorities to spy on and suppress the Occupy movement and peaceful protest in America.
