Portland TA3M, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

Why Privacy Matters

From the Organizers

Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

In this session, AJ Rice will discuss how a lack of privacy affects us as individuals and as a society. Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide. This presentation will focus specifically on why privacy matters, and not on what we should do about it.

Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

Speaker bio:

AJ Rice is a privacy advocate, and the founder & CEO of Privo Mobile. Privo Mobile is a Portland-based tech startup making (private) basic phones, designed for kids, with a modern user experience and interface.
