Assemblymember Jim Cooper has just introduced Assembly Bill 165 which would remove protections against searches of electronic devices for K-12 students. This bill is a threat to the privacy and free speech rights of students in the state of California.

Please sign this petition to protect CalECPA for students and send a strong message to our legislature that California youth are OPPOSED to AB 165.

AB 165 would:

• Would allow school officials to search cell phones and other devices without a warrant, without consent or notice to students or parents

• Remove all protections for student digital privacy rights under the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (CalECPA)

Many of us rely on digital devices to communicate about social and political actions, about immigration, religion, and sensitive personal and family issues. Now more than ever, we need to make sure that California is doing everything it can to protect students of all backgrounds – not passing laws that make us more vulnerable to searches and harassment.

Sign the petition and spread the word and help make sure Californian legislators hear from students loud and clear – NO on AB 165.
