The fight isn’t over yet! Now that the House and Senate have passed their versions of Patriot Act reauthorization, all eyes will be on the joint congressional committee working on resolving the differences. If your elected official is appointed to that committee, please let them know that the Senate version is better than the House bill. Lisa explains why in her blog posts.

But even if you aren’t represented by a conference committee member, you can still have your say. Now is a crucial time to influence public opinion, and to help your entire community know why the Patriot Act is a danger to our democratic freedoms. Blogs are a great way to share your opinions and we’ve got a whole collection of tools to make it easier for you to blog about reforming the Patriot Act.

Visit our Tools for Patriotic Bloggers to find RSS feeds, web site badges, and links to tons of handy documents. We’re also encouraging bloggers to tag their posts so they can be found easily. For example, the “” tag at aggregates all kinds of first-person information about the Patriot Act. Click here to learn more about tags.
