The US Senate could vote on the Protect IP Act as soon as this week.

So we need you to raise your voice today, and call your Senators with one, simple message: “Protect the Internet as we know it. Oppose the Protect IP Act.”

Making the call is easier than you’d think — and will only take a minute or two. What do you say?

You can click here to use a helpful tool that a partner organization put together allowing you to enter your phone number, see some discussion points, and get patched through directly.

Or you can call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121, tell the person who answers where you live, and he or she will connect you to your senator (you’ll need to call a second time for your other senator).

This is part of a broader coalition effort — including other technology companies and public-interest organizations — and we’re looking to flood the Senate with calls today, to make sure our message is heard loud and clear.

Along with its companion legislation in the House — the Stop Online Piracy Act — the bill would create new cybersecurity risks and jeopardize the basic structure of the internet as we know it, all in the name of a goal that would not be achieved.

The chorus against these bills has grown — just on Sunday, the New York Times wrote in an editorial that the bills “overreached” and “[have] serious problems that must be fixed.”

But nothing is certain yet — these bills can be stopped in their current form, if we all raise our voices and make it known that Americans don’t want the internet we know and love to be harmed.

So please call your senators today. Call the switchboard at (202) 224-3121, or use the call tool a partner put together here:

Thanks so much,

P.S. — If you’re not in the US, please pass this along to anyone you know who is. We need as many people as possible to raise their voice today.
