Librarians and friends raise funds for federal lawsuit

August 1, 2001

Almost 60 Chicagoland librarians, attorneys, and staff and members of the Chicago-based American Library Association (ALA) gathered in June to raise funds for the ALA’s federal lawsuit against the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). The event was hosted by Lakeview residents Gerald Hodges and Charles Harmon at the Union League Club. More than $8,000 was raised.
