Why Donate to PEN America?

PEN America Los Angeles is Southern California’s leading organization fighting book bans, protecting the freedom to read, and ensuring that people everywhere have the freedom to create literature, convey information and ideas, and express their views. A donation to PEN America Los Angeles supports our work to protect writers and access to books, celebrate literature, and defend free speech.

Our Los Angeles office continues the defense of free expression by celebrating the creativity of our community, defending against localized efforts to censor, and building advocacy links to prepare for future challenges to free expression.

Help us continue to champion the freedom to write and celebrate essential voices of literature by making an online donation to PEN America today, becoming a PEN America Member, making a gift in honor of a loved one, leaving a legacy gift, or supporting one of our signature events.
