New Cadre of ALA Policy Corps Will Advocate for Libraries and Against Book Bans
ALA shared that its “Public Policy & Advocacy (PPA) Office, in partnership with ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, [are launching] a new initiative for proactive advocacy to combat book banning and censorship in America’s libraries. A cadre of the ALA Policy Corps will boost efforts across library types and states to showcase how libraries and library workers provide essential information resources to their communities while increasing awareness about the importance of intellectual freedom and its centrality to American democracy and society.”
The ALA Policy Corps’ mission is to expand ALA’s “ability to advocate on key policy issues on behalf of the library community. Participants in the Corps focus on issues for which deep and sustained knowledge are necessary to advance ALA policy goals and library values among policymakers.”
