Let’s show her that, however hard times get, the people have her back. That she is fighting the fight of the century: to protect our democracies and our personal data, and to check the power of Silicon Valley’s billionaires. Send your message of support below!
Your message will have the most impact if it’s in your own words, but here are some suggestions:
- Lina, thank you for standing up to Big Tech and fighting for our rights.

We have seen the devastating consequences of allowing Big Tech's power to grow unchecked. Thank you for standing up to these powerful companies.
- Lina: when Meta executives pressure the FTC to overturn this decision, you can tell them that you’re not alone -- you’re fighting for the people. The world is counting on you to protect our societies and democracies from the unchecked power of Big Tech.
