State Freedom Caucus calls on Arizona Library Association to leave the American Library Association
July 28, 2023
The American Library Association is the world’s oldest and largest library association. The association states its strategic advocacy directions include literacy, diversity, and equity of access, information policy and intellectual freedom, and professional and leadership development.
The Arizona Freedom Caucus’ plight follows the Montana Library Association withdrawing its membership from the American Library Association earlier this month in direct response to the group’s president Emily Drabinski describing herself as a “Marxist-lesbian.”
The Arizona Freedom Caucus, it applauded the Montana Library Association’s decision to cut ties with the American Library Association and encouraged the Arizona Library Association to do the same.
