This button was created by the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom in 2006 to recognize the efforts of librarians who work to bring awareness to the overreaching aspects of the USA PATRIOT Act. The button’s design was inspired by a series of emails in which FBI agents complained about “radical, militant librarians”

The American Library Association is a non profit organization that supports and promotes libraries, library professionals and library education. The association was founded in 1876 and is the largest library association in the world.
