Since our founding, the Dramatists Guild has fought to ensure that our work is seen and heard exactly as we wrote it. We have relied on a small army of lawyers working mostly behind the scenes to protect our work from those who would curtail our freedom of creative expression. The Dramatists Legal Defense Fund was created by the Dramatists Guild in 2012 to fight for freedom of expression in the arts. The DLDF does so through education, supporting fair use and censorship litigation, and events like Banned Together: A Censorship Cabaret.
