Action Alert – Follow Friday #ThankYou Campaign on Twitter for NYPD Lawsuit

I Always Feel Like.. Somebody's Watching Me

Wednesday, Muslim Advocates launched Hassan v. The City of New York, a lawsuit seeking to prove that the New York City Police Department’s surveillance of Muslims in New Jersey is unconstitutional. Several lawmakers have also petitioned the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into FBI violations of constitutionally-protected rights of American Muslims.

We hope you’ll join us to thank those who are fighting for our civil liberties by participating in our Twitter campaign. We’ve included a list below to make it easy:
