CBLDF protects the freedom to read comics thanks to the generous support of donors like you!
Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
CBLDF is a lean organization that works hard to protect the First Amendment rights that our community depends on. We monitor legislation and challenge laws that would limit the First Amendment. We create resources that promote understanding of comics and the rights our community is guaranteed. Every day we publish news and information about censorship events as they happen. Our expert legal team is available at a moment's notice to respond to First Amendment emergencies.
All year round, CBLDF works hard to protect the right to read. Our efforts combat the rising tide of censorship facing students, educators, and libraries, and we continue to provide a valuable safety net for creators and retailers. We can only do this work because of the generosity of of our supporters.
2014 was a busy year for CBLDF. We addressed more than two dozen challenges to comics and other books, including a national outbreak of summer reading bans. We defused several legal crises before they could rise to the level of prosecutions. We took a leadership role in Banned Books Week‘s 2014 comics focus. We also added to our expansive education mission, with several new publications, more than 40 public presentations, a new monthly podcast, our weekly newsletter, and daily news and resource content on cbldf.org. CBLDF does all of this work, and more, with a small dedicated staff.
Our 2014 Annual Report goes into even greater detail about the difference your donation makes in helping us protect the freedom to read!
