Stop the Patriot Act

Itís time to take a stand on the Patriot Act. The White House is pressuring Congress to reauthorize it without including meaningful protections on the freedoms of innocent Americans. A bipartisan group of senators have agreed to fight the Patriot Act Ėby filibuster if necessary. We are standing with them in this fight.

"Don't pass the Patriot Act until it provides protections for our constitutional rights and freedoms."

FROM: (Your Name and Email)
SUBJECT: Stop the Patriot Act

Dear Senators,

(Your personal note)

The Patriot Act reauthorization bill before Congress is inadequate. It's bad law and needs to be reformed. I urge you to support the bipartisan group of Senators in blocking this version. A filibuster is the only chance we have to fix the Patriot Act. It should not be reauthorized until it includes needed protections on the privacy and freedoms of ordinary Americans.

Privacy Policy

We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission.

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information - for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, MoveOn may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.

Sending Emails Via Political Action

In certain cases, we enable you to send individual e-mails to the President, legislators, and other targets as well as Letters-to-the-Editor to various news publications, through our website. These messages are sent in your name, with your e-mail address as the return address and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission. These messages will only be sent out under your name as you approve them on an individual basis using our email tool. You are solely responsible for the specific message(s) you send using our email tool.
