THIS IS AN OFFICIAL 2017 BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL EVENT. Find out what we’re up to during the Brooklyn Book Festival here. 

We don’t want to remember December 14, 2017 as the day the internet began to go dark.

PEN America has been at the forefront of petitioning, protesting and pressing to keep the internet open. We have only just begun to fight—the next battlegrounds will be in Congress and the Court.

We won’t stop until a free and open internet has been secured for everyone who thinks, explores, and creates.

Support us as we double down for digital freedom.
