114th Congress: We're updating with new data as it becomes available.

Today, OpenCongress is proud to join the global online action to protest the PIPA net censorship bill. We're on strike by voluntarily limiting access to our site -- except for pages about how the systemically-corrupt U.S. Congress is ramming through PIPA, the worst Internet legislation in history.

If you appreciate all the information on OpenCongress, call the D.C. offices of your U.S. senators now and speak out strongly against PIPA -- phone numbers and talking points are available on our whip-count page.

Since 2007, the Participatory Politics Foundation has operated OpenCongress as a free, open-source, non-partisan Web resource for watchdogging the U.S. Congress. PIPA poses an existential threat to our public-education mission. By establishing a dangerous legal framework for net censorship in the U.S., it endangers free political speech online and the existence of sites like OpenCongress that aggregate data & links from a variety of sources.

For more information and to joint today's protest, please see: http://sopastrike.com

The Participatory Politics Foundation is a founding member of the American Censorship coalition to keep the Web open and fight SOPA / PIPA: http://americancensorship.org

The most important thing you can do today is to call your two U.S. Senators and protest PIPA.

Additional resources

OpenCongress will return in full later this evening (Wednesday, January 18th). Until then, if you support OpenCongress and our work in fighting PIPA, please make a tax-exempt donation to keep us up and running.
