I just got off the phone with a colleague in DC and I have bad news. Mitch McConnell has moved the Senate toward a cloture vote on CISA, the bill that puts companies like Facebook above the law and lets them share all your private data with the government and local cops. 
We’ve changed the political landscape in the last week, and more and more media outlets are reporting on the fact that CISA (which stands for Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act) won’t stop security breaches like the OPM hacks, and might even make us more vulnerable. 
But we need more than 40 Senators to vote “NO” in the next 24 hours or we will almost definitely lose. Time is everything. We simply can’t waste this opportunity to stop CISA or we will regret it for years to come.
I don’t want my kid to grow up in a world without privacy, because a world without privacy is a world without freedom of thought, a world without progress.
Thanks for all that you do,

P.S. Remember when we flew a 30 foot blimp over all of Ron Wyden’s town hall meetings to protest his terrible position on the TPP? Well we’re still mad about his corrupted position on that issue, but we’re pragmatic enough to say that EVERYONE should read his op-ed in The Guardian about how CISA means that 12+ government agencies and even local cops could have access to all your private internet data, your medical records, and more. It’s one of the clearest explanations of how this bill works that I’ve read.
