Government Surveillance

Surveillance Reform

On November 21, 2013, the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), on behalf of a broad coalition of civil society groups, trade associations, companies and investors, delivered this letter to Congressional leadership that called on Congress to reform U.S. intelligence surveillance practices. Signatories urged Congress to limit the scope of surveillance practices, reject bulk collection, and to substantially enhance the privacy protections, oversight and accountability mechanisms that govern surveillance.
