New State Law Pits Privacy Against Free Speech, Public Records and Data Brokers

Yuri Nagano, San Francisco Public Press — Jul 1 2019 - 6:09pm

Though consumers may ask companies to delete or stop collecting data about them, the First Amendment and open-records statutes may thwart their efforts to get people-search sites to delete data after the law takes effect in January. Information brokers argue that the data they post comes from government entities and is publicly available.

March for women against rape

Monica Jensen, The Public Press — Apr 27 2009 - 8:36pm

More than 800 people participated Saturday in the fourth annual Walk Against Rape. The event, sponsored by San Francisco Women Against Rape, raised more than $55,000 for the 35-year-old sexual assault crisis center in the city's Mission District.

Erica Guajardo Johnson, an organizer with San Francisco Women Against Rape, said she was approached by a man during the march who broke into tears while telling her that he was raped many years ago. Seeing everyone marching together gave him the courage to ask for help, Johnson said.

"I just wanted to squeeze him," Johnson said. "That's exactly what this is about ... to give someone the power to admit to themselves and to the world that it's not your fault."
