The Right to Read.
Kvapil, Charline R.; Schellenberg, Louise S.
Arizona English Bulletin, v11 n2 p1-4 Feb 1969
A group of citizens in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1968, organized Right to Read, Inc., to combat potential censors. The purpose of the group is "to promote freedom of access to knowledge and to resist interference with that freedom," especially in schools and libraries. The members hope to improve the community climate before issues on censorship arise by working with and supporting professional educators, by making radio, TV, and personal appearances, by circulating books and pamphlets relevant to intellectual freedom, and by striving to return the burden of proof to the censor.
