You Can Take Action on Legislation Impacting Libraries in 2024
EveryLibrary is monitoring state legislation during the 2024 session that would limit Americans' freedom to read and think for themselves.
View our national tracker of legislation of concern here.
Of most concern are proposed laws that would allow for criminal prosecution of librarians, educators, higher ed. faculty, and museum professionals.
But we can't fight against this kind of legislation alone. Activism works best when communities take action on issues that impact their lives.
That's why we're inviting you to take action today!
If you see anti-library legislation in your state that you would like to take action on, you can launch a petition against it at fightforthefirst.org.
All campaigns on our fightforthefirst.org platform will be supported with pro-bono consulting and up to $1,000 in digital ads. We'll help you every step of the way.
Your donations allow us to support pro-library campaigns across the country with a wide range of tools and resources.
We do more than monitor bills. EveryLibrary is an active and engaged partner with over 75 grassroots groups, many state library associations, and other coalition partners, helping them create and field effective legislative advocacy strategies. We provide partners with free access to a suite of digital advocacy tools including Action.EveryLibrary.Org, FightForTheFirst.org, SaveSchoolLibrarians.org and fundraising tools at fundlibraries.org.
