Friday Forum: Censorship, Intellectual Freedom, and Social Justice: Where are We at Today?
Event Description: Joyce McIntosh will share information about the current state of censorship and challenges in the United States and lead into the ways each one of us can identify a path to advocacy in hopes of protecting access to information for all. We will share a time of questions and conversation following.
Join the conversation with our speaker:
Joyce McIntosh is the Assistant Program Director for the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF), an organization dedicated to First Amendment education, litigation, and advocacy. She has worked at the intersection of intellectual freedom, communication, and the First Amendment for three decades. Her background and education in journalism and library and information science have led her to work for newspapers, non-profits, and for the last two decades in libraries. She worked in a public library outside of Chicago, IL providing reference, programming, outreach, and assistive technology before joining FTRF.
In addition to her work with FTRF, Joyce has worked for the Sierra Club Mackinac Chapter (Michigan) and has participated in an anti-racism training program called White Women Fighting Racism. Joyce strives to apply her values of faith and social justice to every role, conversation, and training she is part of.
