TAKE ACTION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
Say No to Censorship! Stop Book Bans
There are widespread efforts across the U.S. to censor and ban books that include content related to race, gender, sexuality, and LGBTQIA+ subject matter – including in public schools and libraries.
Librarians and teachers are also being targeted in light of the publications they use to support their work, including elevated incidents of threats and harassment as well as police reports filed against library staff. These reports mirror serious challenges to freedom of expression found in authoritarian regimes elsewhere in the world.
The bans are extremely concerning — because freedom of expression and access to education are human rights.
Removing and banning books from public schools and libraries is a slippery slope to government censorship, and erodes the U.S. government’s obligations to human rights.
Join us to call these bans out and help stop them — send a message to your local representative and your mayor today!
