An Open Letter

To: Sen. Sundareshan

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

June 8

The proposed legislation on electronic device filters for obscene material raises concerns about digital censorship and restricting access to online content and communities, particularly for LGBTQ+ individuals. Age verification requirements, such as providing identification to access social media accounts, can disproportionately impact marginalized groups seeking safe spaces for self-expression and community-building. While protecting minors is a valid concern, overly broad restrictions risk infringing on free speech and marginalizing vulnerable populations. A balanced approach is needed to address potential harms without unduly constraining the rights and wellbeing of all citizens. I urge you to carefully consider these implications and prioritize an inclusive solution that upholds digital rights and preserves access to vital online resources.
