Recently, the American Library Association launched Unite Against Book Bans, a national advocacy campaign to highlight and mobilize widespread public opposition to removal of reading materials from libraries and schools. This research-informed campaign will provide information, resources, and actionable measures to strengthen a national grassroots network and empower individuals and groups to take action in their communities and in their states.
We can't do this work alone. As the national voice for libraries, ALA has worked with a wide range of partners to advance the ideals that unimpaired access to information is a cornerstone of our democratic society and efforts to diminish the right to read are a threat to our democracy.
The American Library Association invites your organization to join UniteAgainstBookBans as a partner. Please review the attached statement and, if you are interested, please return the attached statement with the appropriate signature and contact information for your organization, along with a jpeg or png of your organization's logo, to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
