Support Lavabit’s Legal Defense Fund

Ladar Levison, founder of Lavabit:

To fight for the right to keep private emails private, I’ve created this Rally for my company, Lavabit: the encrypted-email service said to have been used by Edward Snowden.

I’ve shut down Lavabit because I refuse to be complicit in the crimes against the American people and the U.S. Constitution. I wish I could say more about our situation.

What happens now? We at Lavabit have started preparing the paperwork needed to continue fighting for the Constitution in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. A favorable decision would allow me to resurrect Lavabit as an American company.

Defending the constitution is expensive! Help us by donating to the Lavabit defense fund.

An American citizen running an American company, and he’s not even allowed to say why he’s been forced to shut down his company. I’ve already donated; if you care about true civil liberties, I encourage you to donate as well.
