CBLDF: The Comics Connector

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) has just announced a new tool they’ve created: The Comics Connector. 

The tool serves as a resource for educators. For example, the tool lists comic creators and industry professionals who can provide lectures and workshops for schools and libraries.

This is what CBLDF had to say on their news:

Comic Book Legal Defense Fund continues the celebration of Children’s Book Week by launching its newest resource – the Comics Connector! CBLDF’s Comics Connector is a directory resource that connects educators and librarians with creators, editors and other comics professionals who are able to provide classroom or library visits. More than 50 comics professionals in 12 states and one Canadian province have signed up with the Comics Connector so far, and more will be added each week. Educators can view participating creators and creators can sign up for this free resource by visiting https://cbldf.org/resources/comics-connector/

CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein says, “At CBLDF, we believe that the best way to fight censorship is to increase understanding. It has led us to create proactive resources that increase the appreciation of comics and their value. With more communities making a place for comics in schools and libraries every year, it was natural for us to begin to build this resource. Our goal is to benefit the readers we all serve by helping foster greater interaction among the educators and librarians who are using comics and the talented people who make them.”

The list is organized by country, state or province. The entries are in alphabetical order.
