Protect digital rights and marginalized communities from internet censorship

To: Sen. Sundareshan

From: A verified voter in Tucson, AZ

July 5

This Arizona bill HB2661, the "Electronic devices; filters; obscene material" bill, seeks to restrict access to online content deemed obscene by requiring electronic devices to have filters installed. However, such measures can result in overly broad censorship that disproportionately impacts marginalized communities like LGBTQ+ individuals by limiting their access to important online spaces and resources. We must ensure internet regulations balance concerns around explicit material with protecting freedom of expression and access to information crucial for underrepresented groups. Instead of overbroad filtering, a better approach would be empowering users with customizable content controls while safeguarding digital rights.
