Featured Session: Data Privacy After Roe v. Wade

Date TBA

The overturning of Roe v. Wade is a watershed moment for the privacy of people seeking reproductive care.
A person’s browser history, search history, location and private messages can be used by law enforcement or private citizens to pursue people who are suspected of having or aiding an abortion.
When people’s most private digital information can be used against them, can tech companies change their practices to better protect their users’ privacy?
As some states try to outlaw websites that tell people how to access abortion care, can advocates ensure that reliable health information remains online?
Join us for a discussion with leading experts on ways advocates are working to protect users’ privacy and access to information at this critical moment for reproductive rights.
