Sign the Petition to

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, The United States Congress and President Obama.

We, as citizens of the United States urge, and demand, that each citizen is afforded equal protection under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. We contest any legislation, or amendment to legislation, which would compel any citizen to reveal any source, or turn over any materials which contributed to the publication of any blog or article regardless of the platform or outlet it is published on.

Furthermore, we demand that no legislation, amendment, or executive action be proposed which would differentiate between citizens and journalist under the law. Specifically, we demand that the Schumer-Graham Amendment attached to Senate Bill 987 be removed, revoked, and stricken in its entirety.

How this will help

With enough support and public outcry we can show Congress that we will not tolerate the persecutation of citizen journalist.
