Dear Member of Congress,


I'm faxing today in support of a law banning the TikTok video-sharing app. I understand that TikTok is hugely popular across America, but that's what makes it dangerous. The parent company of the social-media app captures user data and, reportedly, makes it available to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). That kind of security risk is unacceptable on both a national AND personal level.


But I'm also calling on Republicans in the House and Senate today to "Reject The RESTRICT Act!" as a way to ban TikTok. While protecting every American's personal privacy is important, so is guaranteeing every citizens First Amendment right to the freedom of speech. The RESTRICT Act has been called "Orwellian," a "Trojan horse" and "the Patriot Act on steroids." Please take action to help secure our great nation's safety and sovereignty against China -- the United States' chief global competitor -- while also safeguarding our First Amendment.


While some might see a TikTok ban as blatant censorship, I believe it's necessary to protect individuals' personal data from a foreign government that is hostile to free speech and freedom of religion. But Congress should do that without sacrificing Americans' First Amendment rights. Please note that I am monitoring congressional response to my urgent call to action. Thank you for your time and your assistance regarding this issue of national security AND personal freedom.
