The IAPP stands in support of women’s equality. We are dismayed by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last week overturning more than 50 years of precedent in Roe v. Wade. The IAPP stands against discriminatory laws and unequivocally supports civil rights, which include privacy rights for all persons everywhere.
The IAPP’s Privacy. Security. Risk. 2022 is scheduled for October 13 and 14 in Austin, Texas, one of many states that now place significant restrictions on women’s reproductive rights. We have heard and seen privacy professionals’ calls to cancel or relocate this conference.
We know the laws restricting reproductive rights do not reflect the diversity of the voters or views across the state of Texas or the country. We also believe there is no place more critical for a deep and engaged dialogue on privacy. As such, P.S.R. 2022 will run in Austin.
Our stages will host conversations with scholars on what this decision means to the long-recognized constitutional right to privacy, which has underpinned not only women’s reproductive rights in the United States, but rights to contraception and same-sex marriage as well.
