OpenTheGovernment Joins Advocates and Tech Groups in Call for Surveillance Transparency

Sixty-three organizations, including and many of our coalition partners and tech companies, joined the Center for Democracy and Technology to call for more transparency of government communications surveillance. The letter accompanied the launch of the reform campaign StopWatching.Us. Non-profit and tech groups large and small asked the federal government and Congress to allow companies to share information with the public about the requests they receive. For more about the campaign, see the Center for Democracy and Technology's announcement here.
