White House Call-In Day
On April 5, 2011
Tell Obama: Keep Your Promises and
Demand PATRIOT Act Reform!
On April 5, 1792, President George Washington vetoed a bill the first time in U.S. history that the presidential veto was exercised. On the anniversary of this day, we’re calling on Barack Obama to exercise his presidential powers to veto any PATRIOT Act renewal bill that does not include powerful reforms to safeguard civil liberties.
During his campaign, Obama repeatedly promised to reform the PATRIOT Act and protect law-abiding citizens from unchecked government surveillance powers. Now his administration is resisting meaningful reforms.
Join us! On April 5, call the White House and tell President Obama to keep his campaign promises by vetoing any PATRIOT Act renewal bill that lacks substantial new checks and balances to protect the privacy of innocent Americans.
