BREAKING: The ACLU of California @ACLU_NorCal @ACLU_SoCal @sdACLU is OPPOSING Prop 24, the ballot initiative relating to consumer privacy.

In November, Californians should vote #NoOnProp24.

Let's talk about why.
Prop 24 doubles down on the harmful idea that people should carry the burden of protecting their own privacy by filling out a bunch of forms and hoping companies do as they ask.

Prop 24 isn't privacy protection, it's privacy paperwork.
The truth is, working people don't have the time to do the paperwork and they can't afford to pay companies to respect their wishes.
As a result, Prop 24 benefits big tech and corporate interests, and will disproportionately harm vulnerable communities, like Black and Latinx families and the elderly.

It's the wrong approach for privacy in California (and everywhere else).
Especially in the middle of a health and economic crisis, we need to speak up when policies don't START by centering the most vulnerable and protecting them first.
And Prop 24 is full of loopholes and exceptions that are—how to put this delicately—real bad for privacy. Exceptions for the credit reporting industry, loopholes for big tech, no protection for workers, and new ways for the police to put a freeze on your rights.
Californians deserve a real privacy law. Prop 24 isn't it.

Honored to join the opposition to Prop 24, including @ColorOfChange, @Public_Citizen, @UtilityReform, @twrling, @OaklandPrivacy, @DoloresHuerta, @consumercal, and @CAIRCalifornia.
