An Open Letter

To: Rep. Gutierrez, Sen. Sundareshan, Gov. Hobbs, Rep. Mathis

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

May 24

Restricting online access through age verification requirements would disproportionately impact LGBTQ+ individuals by censoring important resources and community spaces. SB1298's overly broad definition of "material harmful to minors" could be used to suppress educational content and stifle self-expression. This bill threatens the online privacy and free speech of all citizens. Instead of government overreach, we should promote comprehensive internet literacy education that empowers users of all ages to navigate the internet safely and find accurate information from trusted sources. Protecting minors does not necessitate undermining the rights of adults. I urge you to oppose SB1298 and any legislation that enables discriminatory censorship under the guise of child protection.
