To Congress:

There are crucial steps policymakers and regulators must take to prevent fraud and to protect democracy, public safety, and human and civil rights online. This is particularly urgent as we head into critical elections around the world in 2024.

Here in the United States, we desperately need meaningful regulation to rein in social-media platforms’ destructive and reckless behavior before the damage is irreversible. Free Press Action is calling on U.S. lawmakers and regulators to codify reforms that:

  • Minimize data that companies collect and retain.
  • Ban algorithmic discrimination.
  • Require regular platform transparency and disclosure reports on results of AI decision-making tools and political ads.
  • Develop a private civil right of action for violations of users’ sensitive data.
  • Leverage agency and White House authority to craft new rules and launch investigations and prosecutions where statutory violations arise.

Please take appropriate steps to protect the health of our democracy as elections approach in 2024.
