Tell President Obama: Support the USA Freedom Act
The White House just released a series of recommendations for the NSA’s surveillance programs.1 The report is a positive step in the push to end the mass surveillance of millions of people.
But on their own these recommendations would do nothing to stop the NSA’s invasive programs. And some suggestions — like the notion that companies like AT&T and Verizon, rather than the NSA, should retain bottomless troves of our personal data — could prove even more harmful to our rights to connect and communicate in private.
President Obama needs to support the recommendations that would stop mass surveillance. And his next step should be to support the USA Freedom Act.
Tell President Obama to Support the USA Freedom Act.
