Help Stop The Internet Censorship Bill

no_censorship_buttonCongress is about to pass Internet censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the internet censorship bill on Tuesday, January 24th 2012, and unless we can find 41 senators to block the vote, it is going to pass…

Can you meet with your senators during the January recess and ask them to vote it down? Visit http://americancensorship.org/ before January 24th to help.

Here is a helpful guide to In-Person Meetings with Your Congressional Representatives provided by the EFF.
