West Covina, CA asked in Civil Rights and Constitutional Law for California

Q: What rights does a human research subject have when it comes to community engagement?

If I’m a human research subject who has never given consent to be a part of research or been formally explained as to how long the research will last, the research being done or anything about it and have never had a competency assessment to check my ability to be competent enough to give my own consent because it has never been in question, therefore I don’t need a legal representative to make choices for me And my right to the knowledge and consent have been waived, do I have any rights when the community starts engaging because they have been mislead into believing I’m a health risk? Especially if I have no criminal record, lived at my current address for over 12 years, have proof of the fbi admitting to following me when I talked to them over 15 years ago including an attorney that had went with me, plenty of video evidence, letters, emails, I’ve used apps like offer up everyday for 4+years straight to save money and have an extrememly high rating but no one will deal with me now.
