Urge Congress to Pass the Global Online Freedom Act

When you log onto Facebook or check your email, you probably don't think twice about sharing your life's latest updates with friends. Others aren't so lucky. By simply posting a status update in some countries, you could wind up facing government surveillance, harassment, detention -- or worse.

Freedom of expression is a human right. Urge your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Global Online Freedom Act today.
