Dump Mel

Mel Gibson is featured on an ALA Read Poster. The American Library Association has clear anti-discrimination policies. We’ve known about his homophobia for years, but not taken action. Will we also tolerate his anti-Semitism?

Let’s get this “Read” poster removed from ALA’s graphics store. Mel Gibson’s example doesn’t belong on the walls of libraries. I encourage you to ask your state chapter councilor for the American Library Association to ask why ALA is selling this poster, and to lead the way to have this poster removed from ALA inventory. Either that, or let’s even up the representation and add a series of posters featuring famous bigots from all walks of life.
