Aside from contacting elected representatives as described in the EFF campaign above, what can we do to stop it?

We need to bring awareness of this issue to a wider range of people. We need op-eds in major papers. We need discussion on national TV and radio programs. We need to make and distribute posters, handbills, etc.

We must present the issues in ways that are relevant. The problem of data retention impacts small businesses, it would place an undue burden on people who wish to provide services, it would create an unfair advantage for larger businesses while also impacting the risk carried by larger businesses who are forced to comply. And, worst of all, it would have a terrible chilling effect on free speech.

Please add ideas and content to this page! Time is running short.
