What to say to them:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent of the Senator.

I think S. 968, the PROTECT IP Act, is a bad idea, and I hope the Senator will stand against it.

PROTECT IP is overbroad, and could be used as a tool for online censorship. Further, it creates a bad precedent internationally for fragmenting the Internet.

Thank you for your consideration, and for acting against this dangerous bill.

2. Censor Your blogs/websites in protest:
