CREDO Mobile supports full repeal of the illegal surveillance state as the only way to protect Americans from illegal government spying, and we challenge AT&T to demonstrate concern for its customers constitutional rights by joining us in public support of repealing both the Patriot Act and FISA Amendments Act.

We’ve donated more than $2 million to groups working to stop government surveillance. Since 2001, CREDO has given $2,236,036 to organizations like the ACLU, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Demand Progress, Fight for the Future, and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee that are fighting to rein in government surveillance.
