Both the Alaska and U.S. Constitution protect the right to privacy for every Alaskan. The ACLU fights to ensure Americans have control over our personal information and protects our personal privacy from government surveillance. In the modern digital age, the government often uses new technologies in ways that can infringe on the right to privacy. We have sought limits on how and when the government can obtain our information and what they can do with that information, and work to ensure lawmakers pass policies that safeguard citizens' privacy rights.
