PEN America 

PEN America stands at the intersection of literature and human rights to protect free expression in the United States and worldwide.

Penguin Random House 

At Penguin Random House, we believe in the right to freedom of expression and protecting writers against censorship. Reading is indispensable in having an informed, engaged democracy, and the dramatic rise in efforts to ban books in public schools and libraries—many of them by BIPOC or LGBTQ voices—threatens the advancement of our society and culture.

Unite Against Book Bans

Unite Against Book Bans is a national initiative to empower readers everywhere to stand together in the fight against censorship.


Protecting free speech means protecting a free press, the democratic process, diversity of thought, and so much more. The ACLU has worked since 1920 to ensure that freedom of speech is protected for everyone.
