The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has redesigned their organizations logo and refreshed the look of their website. My heart has a special place for the CBLDF and I have been a card carrying member since 1995. This organzation helps protect the first amendment rights of comic store owners and readers.
From Charles Brownstein, the Executive Director of the CBLDF:
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a community of people who love comics and recognize the First Amendment as the cornerstone of the medium’s creative vitality. The new CBLDF.org is designed to reflect and serve that community, with frequently updated news about comics, free expression, and the people who are taking strides to keep both healthy and strong.
Now, and in the weeks to come, you’ll find regular updates about the state of Free Expression, and informative articles about the CBLDF’s supporters and the work they do. You’ll also find better resources about the Fund’s history, along with tools concerning comics censorship and how to fight it.
This page is a work in progress, so we ask for your patience as we work out the kinks. We also ask you to get involved. We are always seeking writers, educators, lawyers, artists, and students to join the ranks of contributors who will make CBLDF.org a vibrant hub of activity in the fight for free speech. You can contact me, Charles.Brownstein@cbldf.org, to lend your voice to our efforts.
For more than 20 years the CBLDF has stood up against those who’d censor comic books because of the grassroots effort of passionate supporters who believe in comics and free speech. Thank you for bringing us this far. Let’s see what we can do together to make the future of Free Expression in comics even stronger!
