I put Callan Bignoli of MLA in touch with Kade Crockford, and then Callan brought it before the MLA exec board who unanimously endorsed it. Here is the text of their endorsement letter!
Massachusetts Library Association Endorsement of S.1385 & H. 1538
Friday, June 14, 2019
To Whom It May Concern:
The Massachusetts Library Association (MLA) Executive Committee voted unanimously during their June 14, 2019 meeting to endorse Massachusetts legislation that would provide for a moratorium on face surveillance.
MLA supports S.1385 & H.1538, presented by Senator Cynthia Creem and Representative David Rogers. Librarians have always been concerned about intellectual freedom and patron privacy. This bill will allow for more conversation about a complex issue that affects all of our fellow residents in the Commonwealth.
Please join MLA in supporting this moratorium on face surveillance.
Milton Public Library, Director
