Day of Action to Demand Warrants for Email
On Thursday, December 5th, organizations including CDT, ACLU, EFF, Google, Twitter, and Tumblr are participating in a nationwide day of action calling for reform of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the law that says the government can access your email and documents in the cloud without a warrant.
ECPA is one of the Internet’s most outdated laws—it was enacted in 1986, before most people had access to a home computer or email. ECPA says that hundreds of government agencies—like the IRS, FBI, and DEA, as well as local law enforcement agencies—can access many of our stored emails, private social media messages, and documents in the cloud without getting a warrant from a judge. The law flies directly in the face of our Fourth Amendment values.
Join us in the day of action: Sign this petition telling the White House to support ECPA reform.
