Freedom of speech as we know it may be in jeopardy. On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, the U.S. Senate will vote on the Stop Online Piracy Act, a bill designed to thwart copyright infringement, but in reality would more likely threaten the overall functionality of the internet by limiting access to free information and crippling sites like Facebook, Reddit, Twitter and YouTube — social media platforms that have helped grassroots organizations thrive and protests revolutionize political cultures.

If you don’t fully understand this potentially harmful legislation, please take a moment to view this video by Fight for the Future. We hope that you’re compelled to take action after viewing it, and will do so by contacting your representative today.
