Free Expression saves lives.
Free Expression illuminates truth, uncovers injustice, and lifts up marginalized voices. It creates connection, empathy, and understanding among communities.
And it’s under constant attack.
Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is on the front lines of protecting Free Expression and the voices being threatened for using it. The teachers and librarians who put their jobs and community standing at risk for offering diverse books. The artists and retailers who face legal threats for making and selling a wide range of ideas. And most importantly, the young people who hear that there’s something wrong with them when a comic book they identify with is targeted for censorship.
CBLDF is making a difference by fighting censorship, providing free legal aid, and creating vital new educational tools.
