November 20, 1969: The Freedom to Read Foundation articles of incorporation filed with the State of Illinois.
November 20, 2014: FTRF members kick off a year-long celebration of our 45th anniversary with a special Google Hangout!
Please join YA author Chris Crutcher, along with FTRF trustees, staff, and members as we hold the first in a series of events celebrating 45 years of defending libraries, library users, and the First Amendment to the Constitution. This event is free and open to all.
For those unable to attend live, the Hangout will be recorded and posted to FTRF's YouTube channel.
Starting in January, FTRF will hold a number of fundraising and awareness-raising events across the country. We'll let you know about events in your area, and other ways you can help support FTRF's litigation and educational efforts. The festivities will culminate in a very special online event next fall.
Make sure to use #FTRF45 for any Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or other social media post referencing these events over the coming 12 months. We look forward to a great turnout!
