A Letter from Joan Bertin, Executive Director, National Coalition Against Censorship Summary

The National Coalition Against Censorship receives calls about censorship and provides information, advice and resources to educate the public about the importance of free speech through the newsletter they publish four times annually. Many people do not understand the First Amendment; they want to protect the material they like but not necessarily what others like. Joan points out that not much would remain if everyone could veto what they do not like. Those who oppose censorship believe that reading is a way for young people to safely explore and understand things. Kids need to learn how to deal with controversial issues, but censors focus on what they believe is acceptable for kids to read at school.
