Action Alert
It's time to Modernize New York Privacy Law

Right now the laws protecting the content of Americans' private electronic communications -- which date back to the mid-1980s -- are so antiquated that they simply are not up to the task of protecting your privacy in the 21st century.

TAKE ACTION: Tell New York legislators to pass the New York State Electronic Communications Privacy Act.

It will require the police to get a warrant from a judge before they can snoop through your digital life and will help protect you from unjustified government access to your cell phone, emails, text messages, digital documents, social media, metadata and location.
