Briefing: 702 Reform or Bust
Listen to a recording of the briefing, held on April 27, here.

With:
Sean Vitka, Policy Counsel at Demand Progress
Josh Withrow, Director of Public Policy at Free the People

Hosted by Chip Gibbons, Legislative & Policy Counsel at Defending Rights & Dissent

The law that legalized warrantless spying and brought us PRISM and Upstream is set to sunset on December 31, 2017. Proponents of mass surveillance are working hard to ensure that Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act will be reauthorized without any reforms, possibly permanently.

Civil liberty advocates have been gearing up too!

Please join us for a teleconference briefing to understand the law, the political dynamics, and how Rights & Dissent and our allies on the left and right plan to force Congress to adopt radical reforms or let the law sunset.
