In May 2006, the nation learned that the National Security Agency has been building a massive database of Americans' phone records. A federal judge has already ruled the warrantless wiretapping program unconstitutional. The Bush Administration claims that it has the inherent authority to continue it.

Learn how you can take action to stop unconstitutional NSA spying and protect your rights to privacy and freedom of speech."
