Cyber Privacy Project Receives Grant from the Rose Foundation


CHICAGO - On August 18, 2008 the Cyber Privacy Project (CPP) received a three-year partial grant from the Rose Foundation Consumer Privacy Rights Fund in Oakland, CA. In providing funding, the Rose Foundation showed support for several CPP projects on a range of privacy and identification issues.

With the help of the Rose Foundation, CPP will continue to work toward its mission of educating the public and researching government-related privacy issues. These CPP projects include medical privacy issues, and opposition to voter ID laws, Real ID, and other licensing and databank issues affecting the right to travel. So far the CPP has contributed to amicus briefs in three Supreme Court privacy and ID cases. Over the next three years, this funding will contribute to establishing CPP as a more widely known organization.
