Yesterday, Representative Zoe Lofgren sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson, expressing her concern with DHS actions against the library in Lebanon, New Hampshire, where we set up our Tor exit relay pilot. In this letter, Rep. Lofgren asks DHS to provide her with any other instances of the agency interfering with the public’s use of privacy-enhancing technologies.

We want to express our thanks to Rep. Lofgren for standing up for our right to use privacy tools like Tor, and we eagerly await the DHS response to her request.
