Restore the Fourth began as a group of people united by one core set of beliefs:
That the U.S. government should not be permitted or able to spy on innocent people domestically or abroad;
That legislation allowing such spying, including the USA PATRIOT Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, should be reviewed and reformed by an impartial third party;
That programs like PRISM, which is a surveillance program of the National Security Agency used to unconstitutionally mine data from unsuspicious civilians, should be truly limited by the Constitution.
As a grassroots, non-partisan, and non-violent movement, Restore the Fourth seeks to organize nationwide protests on July 4, 2013. Protesters in over 100 cities across America will gather to demand that the government of the United States of America adhere to its constitutionally dictated limits and respect the Fourth Amendment.

Restore the Fourth is a group of people from all backgrounds. From average working folks to activists, conservatives to liberals, and youths to seniors, Restore the Fourth aims to include any- and everyone who is interested in strengthening the Fourth Amendment.
The group assembled on June 8, 2013 on reddit as an ad-hoc coalition against government spying as a result of claims by Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency employee, regarding unconstitutional surveillance by his employer. Although Edward Snowden was a catalyst for the movement, Restore the Fourth is much broader than any single person; the strength of the Constitution is the primary concern of the movement.
