The PATRIOT Act markup hearing
starting in a couple of hours going on now is our best chance to influence the Senate legislation for significant reforms — Tracy Viselli’s post on Reno and its Discontents and Jessica Pielko’s on Care2 have background. We’re going to try some last-minute Twitter activism to kick things off. Please help out if you get a chance by tweeting one or more of these over the next couple of hours.
If you’re not on Twitter already, what better time to start? See our If you’re new to Twitter page for easy instructions and a guide for decoding what all this means.
