FTRF works in partnership with a number of organizations on our various cases and other initiatives.
ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom: Established December 1, 1967, the Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) is charged with implementing ALA policies concerning the concept of intellectual freedom as embodied in the Library Bill of Rights, the Association’s basic policy on free access to libraries and library materials. The goal of the office is to educate librarians and the general public about the nature and importance of intellectual freedom in libraries.
FTRF is a separate corporation from the American Library Association, working in close liaison with the ALA. The secretariat is located in the Office for Intellectual Freedom at ALA Headquarters.
The Media Coalition: The Media Coalition is an association that defends the First Amendment right to produce and sell books, magazines, recordings, videotapes and video games; and defends the American public's First Amendment right to have access to the broadest possible range of opinion and entertainment. FTRF is a member of The Media Coalition, and participates in much of the litigation discussed on its site. Founded in 1973, the Media Coalition represents most of the booksellers, publishers, librarians, periodical distributors, recording and video game manufacturers, and recording and video retailers in the United States
