Freedom to Read Foundation and National Associations of Librarians of Color leaders will share how our organizations are responding to challenges to intellectual freedom and the right to access information. A significant number of the challenges in the past two years have been to works by or about persons of color. Through this conversation we will identify ways our organizations can support one another in fighting censorship. 

Through Education, Litigation, and Advocacy, the Freedom to Read Foundation works to protect First Amendment rights. A commitment to social justice is fundamental to the work of the Foundation. Learn more here.

Sukrit Goswami, President of the Freedom to Read Foundation
