Chair’s Initiative

Cybersecurity & Data Privacy

State attorneys general continue turning their cybersecurity focus from discussions and dialogue to action. Cybercrimes are an ever-increasing threat to consumers, businesses and national security. The cybersecurity subcommittee provides interested parties an opportunity to dialogue on how mutual data security and privacy efforts might preserve online safety, protect consumers and ensure the rule of law while also respecting the role of states to regulate such efforts.

Social Justice & Equity

To facilitate dialogue in the AG community, AGA set out to create a series of conversations exploring issues related to social justice and social equity. 2021 is the inaugural year of this forum and will continue in the years to come.

Organized Retail Crime

Organized Retail Crime, or “ORC” refers to professional shoplifting or other theft occurring in retail stores, often resulting in the sale of stolen goods online. AG Offices have launched units to tackle ORC in their states. This group works to understand and discuss the legal landscape and potential solutions related to organized retail crime.

Cannabis

The Cannabis Project provides interested parties an opportunity to dialogue on how cannabis legalization might preserve public health and safety, protect consumers and ensure the rule of law, while also respecting the role of states to innovate and experiment as laboratories of democracy.

Sports Betting & Online Gaming

Attorneys General play integral roles in partnering with regulators, law enforcement, and industry to curtail illegal sports betting.

Human Trafficking

Attorneys General often foster public-private partnerships to combat human trafficking and provide resources to victims.
