The American Booksellers Association's Advocacy page has information on current actions related to banned books and fair trade.
The American Booksellers Association urges you to contact your lawmakers in support of the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (S. 2992), Klobuchar’s Antitrust bill. Amazon is primed for another year of anticompetitive practices that will help the online behemoth grow at the expense of communities, jobs, local businesses, and our economy. In response, it’s time to get even; it’s time to even the playing field. Urge U.S. House and Senate lawmakers to bring The American Innovation and Choice Online Act (S. 2992) to the floor for a vote!
