California: Tell Your Legislators to Stand Up for Privacy

Californians have a constitutional right to privacy, and should be able to take companies that violate their privacy to court.

Tell your lawmakers to support Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson's S.B. 561, to give the Attorney General's Office and all Californians the tools we need to enforce our privacy rights.

S.B. 561 ensures the Attorney General's Office has tools needed to protect our privacy. It also establishes a crucial power for all of us: the right to act as our own privacy enforcers. With a private right of action, this bill ensures that every person can go to court to hold companies accountable when they violate the law and refuse to respect our rights.

94 percent of Californians support the right to take companies to court for violating privacy rights. Legislators should listen.

Speak out to demand that legislators step up to enforce our privacy rights and publicly support S.B. 561.
