ANTI -REAL ID ACTION ALERT CAMPAIGNS DU JOUR
~ 12/31 DEADLINE MENU~
For Conservative Tastes: DownsizeDC.org
REAL ID is scheduled to go into effect on January 1. The good news is that it may be repealed by then. The bad news is that it may be replaced by something worse, the PASS ID.
For General civil libertarians, or Left leaning palettes: ACLU’s RealNightmare.org
PASS ID would impose the United States’ first-ever national identity card system. It would enable restrictions on who can travel, enable increased surveillance of travel and purchasing habits, burden religious minorities, and it fails in its mission to make driver’s licenses secure. http://www.realnightmare.org/about/114/
Call your Senators today and tell them to oppose PASS ID (S. 1261), Sen. Akaka’s “Real ID-Lite”!

For Moderates – or independent adventurers : 5-11 Campaign’s Action Alert + Grassroots Netroots Alliance
The PASS Act is an attempt to continue policies of identity surveillance present in the Real ID Act. The PASS Act would allow Real ID regulations and policies to continue, mandating RFID and biometrics technologies, which have been repeatedly proven to be insecure and inappropriate for identity. The PASS Act does not in fact repeal the Real ID Act. It simply changes the name and a few of the regulations so it can continue move forward over laws established to stop Real ID by 25 States.
Please tell your local and federal officials to vote NO on the PASS Act and that you will not accept a substitution for the Real ID Act when it should justly be repealed.
