Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky

Representing the 9th District of Illinois


We have a right to the protection of personal information.  As our economy and technology continue to change, so does the face of privacy rights.   Americans should feel confident that the purchases they make, the books they read, the places they travel, sensitive medical information and the legal activities they participate in within their own homes can be kept personal and private.  I will continue to speak out in favor of strong privacy protections and to guarantee that individuals control what information they divulge and the nature of that information.
