On June 19, 2013 a petition was launched to the Obama administration, stating that Edward Snowden is a national hero and should be immediately issued a full, free, and absolute pardon for any crimes he has committed or may have committed related to blowing the whistle on secret NSA surveillance programs.

LSEC supports the Caspar Bowden Legacy Fund for privacy advocacy and technology.
Rest in peace Caspar.
