We Fight Surveillance

Librarians can resist the surveillance state and help bring privacy back to local communities. Library Freedom Project can help.

What does Library Freedom Project do?

Privacy is essential for democracy. We provide librarians and their communities with the skills necessary to turn ideals into action. 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 to mitigate the harms of living in a surveillance society.
