In the days since SCOTUS’ destructive decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, we have heard from so many community members like you – asking how best to take action and truly make an impact in this awful moment. That’s why ACLU People Power is hosting a new series of Abortion Activist Training sessions throughout this summer – so you can join the fight, no matter where you are.
We’re kicking this series off on July 12 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT – with our first session, Know Your Rights: Digital Privacy and Abortion Access – and we hope you’ll be there. Because with the fall of Roe and the loss of federal protections for abortion, our digital privacy matters more than ever. RSVP today and get ready to join fellow activists to mobilize for our rights and safety in this critical first training:RSVP TODAY
Steven, in this virtual session, we’ll hear from reproductive freedom and speech, privacy, and technology experts on law enforcement’s long history of weaponizing technology to track, surveil, and arrest us – and what we can do to digitally protect ourselves and our loved ones when seeking abortion care.
Most importantly, we’ll learn how we can protect our constitutional right to privacy by supporting the 4th Amendment is Not for Sale Act. This critical piece of legislation will ensure that the government is not able to purchase our data (including our location and browsing history) from third-party brokers and make it harder for states to persecute anyone seeking an abortion by weaponizing their personal information.
Privacy, online and off, goes hand-in-hand with reproductive freedom. We must fight like hell to keep these civil liberties as safe as possible in this critical moment and for decades to come.
Catch you there,
The ACLU Team
P.S. When you sign up for this first session with People Power – you’ll also have the option to select any and all future sessions you’d like attend this summer, too. So RSVP today and together, let’s fight back with everything we’ve got.
