From the Organizers:
Every two years when the Texas Legislature is in session, EFF-Austin checks in with Kathy to discuss bills related to digital rights and privacy. Current digital privacy issues for the 88th Lege could include regulating ALPRs, health information privacy, cyberbullying laws, government cybersecurity and more. We encourage you to attend so that you can be informed about what your representatives may be voting on, such that you can reach out and let them know how you feel about the bills they are considering.
Our speaker this month is Kathy Mitchell. Kathy Mitchell is a former board member of EFF-Austin and has advocated for digital privacy, justice and police accountability at the Texas legislature for roughly 20 years. She now works for Just Liberty, a bipartisan nonprofit dedicated to justice reform, from arrest to re-entry.
This event will be followed by drinks and camaraderie from 9:00PM-10:00PM in the Omni Hotel lobby.
