California: Tell the Senate To Empower You To Protect Your Own Privacy

California Privacy

Californians have a constitutional right to privacy, and 94 percent of Californians agree they should be able to take companies that violate their privacy to court.

S.B. 561, authored by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, would provide consumers with that right and also improve existing tools for the state attorney general to enforce the California Consumer Privacy Act. This bill is the only one in the California legislature today to strengthen enforcement of the CCPA.

California: Speak up for your privacy

California State Sen. Anthony Portantino, chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, will make the decision about whether to move this bill forward next week.

Your voice is essential to supporting this bill. Please take five minutes to call Sen. Portantino’s Sacramento or district offices to tell him that you support S.B. 561 and think people should have the right to sue companies that violate their privacy.

  • Sacramento: (916) 651-4025
  • Glendale: (818) 409-0400
  • San Dimas: (909) 599-7351

Sen. Portantino must hear that people are the best advocates for their own privacy, and it is essential that every person can hold companies accountable in court when businesses refuse to respect our rights.

In addition to providing this important right, S.B. 561 also gives the Attorney General’s office better tools to enforce the CCPA, and makes sure that companies do not get a free pass when they violate our privacy.

Speak up to protect your privacy rights, and demand that Sen. Portantino and the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee do the same by supporting S.B. 561.
