Our segment will feature Bone creator and CBLDF Board Member Jeff Smith alongside American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang  in conversation with CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein and PEN American Center’s Freedom to Write Fellow Deji Olukotun about the censorship comics authors face, and how you can make a difference.  Viewers will have the opportunity to interact with the conversation and to donate directly to CBLDF directly from the hangout.

Established in 2012, Giving Tuesday brings together global charities, families, community centers, students, and more for a day of giving. This year, Giving Tuesday will be held on Tuesday, December 3. Google+ will provide an opportunity for individuals to give back in the first-ever Hangout-a-thon, a 12 hour event where viewers will be able to get involved and donate to over 25 charities directly from a hangout.

Google+ is a sharing and communications platform that brings your real-world friendships and relationships online for a fun, interactive experience–as well as lets you make new friends and connections with people who share your passions and interests. Much more than a social network, Google+ makes it even easier to use other Google products, share content, and use integrated text and video chat–all for free.
