Join us this Thursday, June 24 at 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern for our June Membership Meeting Recoding Censorship. We are pleased to announce the stellar panelists that will be joining us for our event. Guest panelists include Terry Anderson (Cartoonists Rights Network International), Gordon Danning (Consultant — Youth Free Expression Program, National Coalition Against Censorship), Jackie Farmer (Senior Program Officer, Targeted Advocacy, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education), and CBLDF’s very own Betsy Gomez (Coalition Coordinator).
The Comics Code may be gone, but its specter remains. Our next online event, Recoding Censorship, will examine the changing state of censorship and what it means for comics today. How have challenges to comics in schools and libraries evolved in recent years? What can we all do to protect creative freedom and access to comics online? How will new laws aimed at limiting free expression affect the comics community? Interim Director Jeff Trexler will be moderating what is sure to be a lively discussion of the new censorship battles facing creators, retailers, educators, and fans alike!
If you’re unable to attend the Zoom event, make sure to check back; we’ll be posting a video of the panel afterward — and if you have any questions or suggestions of topics to cover, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
We look forward to seeing you there!
