We need everyone to call or email their senators Thursday, to tell them to oppose the Earn It Act. The sex worker collective Hacking/Hustling explains why:
Why are we saying #FUCKEARNIT?
EARN IT would create a group of law enforcement, tech reps and service providers who work on the issue of child abuse to come up with regulations for the internet. Some have already been vocal about wanting to kill user encryption (do you use Signal?). It’s many of the same actors and approaches that brought you SESTA, with an even broader mandate. For more information, check out the Hacking//Hustling page on EARN IT, with a webinar recording, section-by-section explainer of the bill, and more.

What if my Senator isn’t on the list?
Your can still call and alert them to the bill, but your job is to find one person in one of the above states and ask them to call their Senator(s) for you. And follow @HackingHustling to stay updated on EARN IT.
