Make the FBI Stop Spying on Activists

In a blatant attempt to intimidate peaceful protesters and discourage First Amendment-protected activities, FBI and DHS agents visited peaceful activists asking about their plans for the Republican National Convention. "FBI and Police Knocking on Activists' Doors Ahead of Republican  Convention," The Intercept.
    "Invoking Orlando, Senate Republicans set up vote to expand FBI spying," Reuters.
    "Recap: What We’ve Learned About Surveillance of Black Lives Matter," Bill of Rights Defense Committee / Defending Dissent Foundation.


The FBI and DHS have conducted ongoing surveillance of nonviolent social justice activists for years. They have engaged confidential informants, infiltrated groups, and interrogated organizers. 

Please sign this petition to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees:

Fulfill Congress’s oversight role by investigating the FBI and DHS surveillance of activists and political organizations. The U.S. government should never subject Americans to surveillance for exercising basic Constitutional rights.
