Library Freedom Project is radically rethinking the library professional organization by creating a network of values-driven librarian-activists taking action together to build information democracy.
What does Library Freedom Project do?
Libraries are essential for democracy. We provide librarians and their communities with the skills necessary to turn our ideals into action, focused on issues like privacy, intellectual freedom, and information democracy. Our community of LFP privacy advocates work collaboratively to drive policy, teach stakeholders, and enact change. Our work is informed by a social justice, feminist, anti-racist approach. We believe in the combined power of long-term collective organizing and short-term, immediate harm reduction.
