Folks, it's time to get vocal... the fact is if you work in the tech industry you're being targeted by this bill. Your livelihood, your business, your future at risk.

Not only that, your friends, co-workers, business partners, business enemies are all at risk. We all have a lot to lose in this fight.

For folks that do not work in the tech field, think about how the innovations in the tech industry in the last 15+ years have drastically changed how you interact with friends, family, businesses and everything else.
