Joyce McIntosh has worked at the intersection of intellectual freedom, communication, and social justice, for three decades. Her degrees in journalism and library and information science have given her an understanding of the ways that communicating a thought and sharing information can have a significant impact, good or bad, on the person receiving that information. One of the most important experiences Joyce participated in was a year-long seminar called White Women Fighting Racism. That initiative changed her understanding of, and approach to, DEI. She is currently the Assistant Program Director for the Freedom to Read Foundation, an organization dedicated to First Amendment education, litigation, and advocacy. Her favorite downtime hobby is producing the podcast Books, Bible, Beer & Queer. Pre-pandemic, she enjoyed producing a monthly stand up show with the Mother Cluckers. She lives outside of Chicago, IL with her wife, two sons, and one dog.
