Tell President Obama: Protect My Privacy, Veto CISPA

Update: April 16, 2013

Yesterday, we reached two important milestones in the fight to stop CISPA! Just after surpassing 50,000 petition signatures, a formal statement from the White House announced President Obama's intention to veto CISPA if it passes Congress in its current form. But with several amendments to the bill pending that could make him rethink his veto threat (even if they do little to protect our privacy), we need to keep the pressure on.


Update: April 5, 2013

Over 40,000 ACLU supporters have already signed their names opposing CISPA and the far-reaching consequences it would have for our personal online privacy. Help us get to 50,000 petition signatures before Congress finalizes CISPA next week and brings it to a vote after Tax Day (April 15). If we reach our goal, we’ll run a full-page advertisement in Politico, aimed at Capitol Hill, asking President Obama and other key decision-makers to “kill the bill.”


The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, is a proposed law that would give companies unprecedented power to hand your personal information from the internet, including from private communications, over to government agencies without a warrant.

When CISPA first showed up last year, we successfully defeated it—so we need to remind President Obama about this dangerous threat to our personal privacy, and ask him to tell Congress he intends to veto CISPA once more.

Dear President Obama,

Thank you for your public opposition to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) last year.

With CISPA’s recent reintroduction on Capitol Hill, we ask for a renewed commitment to preventing such a flagrant violation of every American’s right to privacy. We cannot continue to blindly sacrifice personal liberties in the name of national security.

Please tell Congress you will veto CISPA if it makes it to your desk this year.
