NHMC and Allies Urge Congress to Incorporate Civil Rights Principles into Privacy Legislation

On April 19, 2019, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) joined allies in a letter to Congress emphasizing the importance of addressing data-driven discrimination and equal opportunity in comprehensive privacy legislation. The letter comes as Members in both chambers of Congress consider options for a federal privacy solution.

For NHMC and other civil rights advocates, ensuring that a civil rights framework designed to protect marginalized communities is at the foundation of any privacy legislation is a priority. Communities of color and low-income consumers are frequently targeted for data discrimination and related privacy harms which result in voter suppression, digital redlining, and identity theft.

NHMC is committed to centering Latino voices in the debate over federal privacy legislation.The full letter can be found here.

National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a woman-led 501(c)(3) non-profit civil and human rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward the Latino communities.
