mission statement

The mission of Foundation 451 is to get banned and challenged books directly into the hands of students, and to heighten awareness of the need for a plurality of ideas—especially in the arts and literature—to build a society that truly honors freedom, justice, and inclusivity. We want all young people, especially those who have felt marginalized, to be seen, heard, and represented.
