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.

From the "Great Firewall" of China to efforts to control popular uprisings in the Middle East, repressive governments are trying to make Internet and technology companies allies in their efforts to censor. We need strong regulation to prevent U.S. companies from cooperating with repressive governments -- provisions included in the Global Online Freedom Act.

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

If You Want to Win, Go Progressive

The big question right now is whether to call Hillary Clinton a progressive, or a "moderate."

And then there's the question of who is more electable in a general election: an unabashedly progressive democrat, like Bernie Sanders; or a "centrist" democrat, like Hillary Clinton.
