Briefing: 702 Reform or Bust Thursday, April 27 8 pm eastern/ 5 pm Pacific With: Sean Vitka, Policy Counsel at Demand Progress Josh Withrow, Director of Public Policy at Free the People Register below for Dial-In Details
We are gearing up for a major advocacy effort to fundamentally reform (or force to sunset) one of the most sweeping and oft-abused surveillance authorities available to the intelligence community: Section 702 of the FISA Amendment Act.
As Edward Snowden revealed, Section 702 is the law the NSA relies on to authorize Prism, and Upstream to collect vast amounts of internet communications without a warrant. Although supposedly aimed at foreign targets and foreign intelligence collection, US persons and communications are swept up in the collection.
Please join us for a teleconference briefing to understand the law, the political dynamics, and how civil liberties advocates on the left and right plan to force Congress to adopt radical reforms or let the law sunset.
Thanks for registering for our briefing on Section 702.
