Freedom to Read Foundation Unveils New Website, Blog

From ALA:

The Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF) — the First Amendment legal defense organization affiliated with the American Library Association — has unveiled its new website. The site — which retains the URL www.ftrf.org— is a significant upgrade for the organization and will enhance the online experience for FTRF members, donors, grant and award applicants and those who want to know more about the cases and programs in which FTRF is involved.

Among the features of the new site are the new FTRF Blog, the ability for members to update their contact information, individual profiles for those on the FTRF Roll of Honor and a more streamlined process for those applying for the Judith F. Krug Banned Books Week event grants and Gordon M. Conable ALA Conference scholarships. The site is tightly integrated with FTRF’s Facebook page, Twitter feed (@ftrf) and other communication and outreach efforts.
