Tell Congress: Oppose cybersecurity legislation that violates Americans' rights

The House of Representatives is preparing to vote on legislation that would give the government, including military spy agencies like the National Security Agency, unprecedented powers to snoop through people's personal information — medical records, private emails, financial information — all without a warrant, proper oversight or limits.

The Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Protection Act (H.R. 3523), promoted as a measure to counter cyber attacks, would allow the NSA to collect the internet records of people who are not suspected of doing anything wrong. This unprecedented and broadly worded bill clears the way for internet providers, wireless carriers, and websites to share your personal information with military spy agencies.

Tell your Representative today to reject legislation that will make it easier for internet companies to share your personal information with military spy agencies.

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
As your constituent, I write to share my opposition to expanding the government's cybersecurity authorities in ways that violate my First and Fourth Amendment rights. I understand that the House will vote on legislation in the coming weeks and I will be paying attention to how you vote on this very important issue.

In particular, I oppose any cybersecurity legislation that allows companies to share sensitive and private information with military agencies, including the National Security Agency. It is a long-standing American value that our military does not operate on US soil against American citizens.

I strongly urge you to uphold this very important limitation and not allow the NSA unfettered access to Americans' internet activity.
