Panel 2: Fundamental Privacy Rights – Intersectional Justice

IAPP Credits Available


“The right of privacy is the right to be left alone. It is a fundamental and compelling interest. It protects our homes, our families, our thoughts, our emotions, our expressions, our personalities, our freedom of communion and our freedom to associate with the people we choose…The right of privacy is an important American heritage and essential to the fundamental rights guaranteed by the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Ninth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.” 

This panel will explore the intersectional nature of this fundamental privacy right and how it can better support rights and power social change for diverse Californians.
