PREPARING FOR DATA ACTION DAY

CR Data Bootcamp

Consumer Reports’ (CR) 2024 Data Action Day is all about empowering individuals with the essential knowledge and tools to take back control of their personal data, and to push for new ground on the right to privacy for all.

It’s often tough to get a handle on how personal data is being collected, let alone where it goes or what can be done about it. So, we’ve curated a series of data workouts so we can get our data-selves in shape together for 2024! You can sign up to join our bootcamp in real time below.
