I have worked as an organizer with Portland’s Radical Reference, and am currently the Chair of the Portland Chapter of ALA’s Social Responsibilities Round Table. I am passionate about education and intellectual freedom, and have presented on issues relating to student attitudes towards research, copyright, digital rights management, and the use of new technologies in the library setting.
