Tennessee is home to an important research and code-breaking physical NSA facility - giving the 4th Amendment Protection Act even more immediate impact should it pass. For 2015, HB679 and SB782 would block state-level “material support or resources” to the NSA and other federal agencies involved in unconstitutional spying. Take the following action steps to support these important bills.

1. CONTACT YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE

Strongly, but respectfully urge them to support and co-sponsor HB679. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email, so make sure to take a few minutes to call.

2. CONTACT YOUR STATE SENATOR

Strongly, but respectfully urge them to support and co-sponsor SB782. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email, so make sure to take a few minutes to call.

3. CALL BACK – ANY NO OR UNDECIDED 

– in 3-4 days.   Make sure to follow-up. If they say YES, be sure to thank them and, if possible, announce their committed YES vote to email and social media contacts. If they say no, politely ask them why. Get the information from them and contact us.

 

4. SPREAD THE WORD. 

Share this information widely by facebook, twitter, email and other social networks.

 

5. DONATE

We cannot succeed without your help - and without the financial resources to get things done. We accept no government grants, and have no corporate backers. In fact, those who lobby most aggressively against our work are government organizations (like law enforcement groups) and corporate interest groups (like a local chamber of commerce)

In 2013 legislation was enacted to require law enforcement to get a warrant before using a drone in a criminal investigation. Strong grassroots pressure can build on the effort to move things forward.
