Dear fellow Democrat,

Every day, big businesses and data brokers collect and sell our personal information without our knowledge or consent. An initiative proposed for the November ballot will give us an unprecedented opportunity to take back control of our own personal information. It’s called The California Consumer Privacy Act.

Under current California law, we do not have the right to find out what information businesses are collecting about us, much less who they are selling that information to.

Additionally, many businesses that collect our personal and private information don’t implement the most basic security measures to keep our data safe, making our identities vulnerable to hackers. That’s why we’ve included strong accountability measures in our initiative when companies breach our data.

The California Consumer Privacy Act will:

  1. Give Californians the right to know what information big businesses are collecting about us & our families;
  2. Give us the power to decide if we want companies to STOP selling our personal information; and;
  3. Hold companies accountable for data breaches and breaking the law.

We need your help. Can we list you as a supporter of the California Consumer Privacy Act?

Together, we can fight against major corporations seeking to profit off our data and take back control of our privacy.

Peace and friendship,

John L. Burton
Former Chair
California Democratic Party
