Protecting Americans' Privacy

For many years, Ron has been at the forefront of the fight to shut down the NSA’s warrantless surveillance programs and protect the rights of law-abiding Americans. Ron believes strongly in your right to privacy and has never been afraid to go toe-to-toe with federal agencies to make sure our rights are respected and protected.

Ron was one of the first to sound the alarm on government abuse of the Patriot Act to surveil millions of law-abiding Americans. He succeeded in passing legislation to finally end this collection of law-abiding Americans phone calls.

In 2019, Ron introduced the most sweeping overhaul of America’s privacy laws in history, in order to protect consumers from bad actors that would misuse or abuse their data. His legislation also includes real penalties, like prison time for CEOs, to hold companies and their executives accountable for failing to protect private information.

In the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned, Ron has led the charge to pressure private companies to protect Americans’ reproductive data so it can’t be weaponized against women that seek out reproductive care.
