Professor Khiara Bridges from Berkeley Law at the University of California will deliver a lecture and discuss her new book, The Poverty of Privacy Rights, which argues that the constitutional right to privacy is denied to the poor, particularly poor mothers, because our culture equates poverty with immorality. Bridges contends we must change the narrative about why people are poor and why people want to be parents despite their poverty. If we had these different stories, we might have different laws.
