Scribd Stands With Immigrants and Offers Free Educational Resources
By Trip Adler, Founder & CEO, Scribd
Scribd’s founding mission was to give everyone the ability to share new ideas with the world, because we’ve always believed that there’s no such thing as too much information.
Like many of you, I was deeply troubled by President Trump’s executive order suspending entry of citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries. This policy goes against the values our country was built upon, and against the culture of diversity and inclusion we value at Scribd.
That’s why it’s important to us that everyone has the opportunity to educate themselves about what’s happening right now. We’ve created collections that will help you learn about history, immigration, civil rights, and how to make your voice heard.
In an effort to make this content available to anyone who wishes to read it, we will be offering a credit-card-free trial, essentially opening the Scribd library to everyone for the next month.
We at Scribd stand against President Trump’s order, as well as any law that discriminates against anyone. Immigrants have made immeasurable contributions to our country, and Scribd would not be where it is without team members from all over the world, from all backgrounds.
As Thomas Jefferson once said, “...an informed citizenry is at the heart of a dynamic democracy.”
