Listen to bill sponsor Senator Julie Gonzales, lawyer Arash Jahanian, campaign manager Siena Mann, health advocate Maria Rangel-Albañil, and former CIRC board member Mercedes García discuss our exciting new bill for data privacy (volume on for English audio):
Colorado must rebuild trust with its immigrant communities by protecting the privacy of its residents, particularly those who trust Colorado government agencies with their personal information. That’s exactly what the Campaign for Data Privacy for All is working to do.
6 states have already taken action to protect sensitive personal information as part of their driver’s license programs. 150,000+ non-citizen Coloradans have shared their personal information with the DMV to apply for a driver’s license.
The Campaign for Data Privacy for All is working with Senator Gonzales and Representative Gonzales-Gutierrez to pass a state bill that will permanently block federal agencies like ICE from accessing data from local or state agencies without a criminal warrant or subpoena.
We are proud to announce that Senator Gonzales will introduce this critical piece of legislation in the Colorado Legislature very soon! We are committed to working with the Senator and all Colorado legislators to ensure that this bill is passed this legislative session and finally puts into place permanent protections for the privacy of all Coloradans’ data.
