As an organization with both an international membership and a commitment to transnational writing research, the Conference on College Composition and Communication reiterates its commitment to the freedom of all members — and, indeed, all people — to move freely across national and international borders. Movement of individuals is closely tied to movement of ideas and language, movement that enriches the lives of writers and writing regardless of location. CCCC opposes any actions that impede this freedom.
Given the U.S. administration’s recent actions related to international travel and immigration that restrict movement, in keeping with these principles, NCTE will refund CCCC convention and workshop registration fees for international participants should they determine they are unable to attend the CCCC convention. CCCC is also exploring options to honor the work of members who are unable to attend; details will be provided as they unfold.
