Coalition Letter in Support of American Data Privacy and Protection Act

August 25, 2022

Advancing Justice - AAJC joins civil rights groups in urging Speaker Pelosi to move H.R. 8152 (American Data Privacy and Protection Act) to a House vote.

The undersigned 48 civil rights, privacy, and consumer organizations urge you to expeditiously move H.R. 8152, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA), to a vote by the full House of Representatives.

ADPPA is comprehensive federal privacy and civil rights legislation that will, for the first time, create real and lasting protections for the personal data of hundreds of millions of consumers in America. It will also significantly expand equal opportunity online through strong anti-discrimination provisions, algorithmic bias assessments, and heightened protections for data that reveal sensitive information about a person.
