Action Alert: call your Legislators now to protect your child's privacy!

A bill introduced by AM Cathy Nolan, A. 7872, was approved by the NYS Assembly Education Committee yesterday which would allow parents to opt out their children’s personal data from being shared with inBloom Inc. and for-profit vendors.  As such, it represents a big step forward in protecting the privacy rights of children. Here is a pdf of an updated fact sheet to post or distribute in your schools.


Contact your State Senators today; and ask them to co-sponsor the same bill in the Senate.  We only have one more week of the Legislative session, so you need to call them today; you can find their contact information at  

Please also contact the Chair of Senate Education Committee Flanagan at (631) 361-2154.  But do it today!    If you can, email us at to let us know what they said.

Also forward this message to your friends and colleagues, and share on Facebook as well.
