• Stand with the Autauga-Prattville Public Library
    Clean Up Alabama knows that its policies are unpopular and that the public, when informed of their plans, does not support their efforts. This is why they must employ shady political tactics, make vile accusations, and threaten library board members and city officials. They want censorship and publicly applaud book burning; they are extremists who will accept nothing less than the complete eradication of everything they deem “offensive.” By siding with these extremists, the Autauga County Commission completely betrayed the Autauga-Prattville Library, causing three of the current (and long-serving) library board members to resign. Even worse, each Commissioner betrayed the trust of their constituents - an unwise move going into an election year. Read Freely Alabama and Fight for the First, Prattville demands that the Commissioners immediately rescind the appointment, issue an apology to the previous board members and work with the library to appoint candidates committed to protecting parental rights and constitutional librarianship. Please sign and share this petition and join us in calling for the Autauga County Commission to rescind this appointment and to follow established procedures for appointing future library board members

  • Say NO to Book Bans in CISD
    As you are well aware by now, there are people who seek to remove any book from the CISD library shelves that does not align with their personal ideology. Extremist groups that do not have children in CISD are using school board meetings to push their own agenda. It is important that students not only see themselves represented in the pages of a book, but also gain empathy for others by reading about experiences outside of their own. These book challenges will only increase in the coming days as we near the presidential election. Please join me to advocate for ALL students, because ALL MEANS ALL!

  • STUDENTS in Support of Libraries
    Reading opens doors for students to find someone like themselves by allowing them to read views from around the world. In Catawba County, the library is a prime spot to access books as many students don't have the means to buy books. Student voices need to be heard as WE are the ones affected.

  • Support the right to read in Catawba
    Books are being removed from Catawba county school libraries, infringing on parent rights. These bans have consumed tax payer money, teacher's time, and school board time that could have been spent on educating our children. Tell the school board you want these books kept on the shelves. Sign and share this petition.

  • Stop censorship at the Community Library Network!
    Library Trustees are imposing their beliefs on library patrons by censoring books available to young patrons. They are updating the Materials Selection Policy by updating selection of books as a whole or "IN PART." Our Sheriff Norris has also weighed in. Parents should be the ones to determine what books are appropriate for their child, not the Board of Trustees. Having access to a wide array of viewpoints and information is a hallmark of intellectual freedom. Sign today! Let's show the library trustees we are against censorship in any form.

  • Oppose Censorship in Harford County
    Members of the Harford County Council and Board of Education are overstepping their positions and improperly imposing their personal beliefs into our school libraries. Not only is this censorship but their actions are creating a hostile environment for HCPS students and staff. It is not the job of HCPS nor the County Council to restrict resources and books to students. Having access to a wide variety of books, resources and information is an individual freedom and right of the student and parent. Sign today! Lets show the BoE and the County Council that Harford Countians are against banning any books. We want a safe and inclusive learning environment for ALL of our students.

  • Parents Defending Schools and Libraries - Canby
    Student rights do not end at the school house door. The right to read is a fundamental constitutional right. Every book that is banned, removed or labeled erodes that right.

  • Support the Paris-Bourbon County Public Library
    Confrontational mega-challenge campaigns divert library professionals divert library professionals and administration from the work of creating a vibrant, fresh collection. These campaigns are designed to use financial and human resources in order to call for defunding public libraries. Often the ultimate goal of these campaigns is to remove a community's public library completely. Censorship campaigns destroy the First Amendment rights of readers, create an anxious and uncertain atmosphere for the vast majority of library users, and ultimately damage communities.

  • Oppose Defunding The Ozark Dale County Library
    The Mayor is entitled to his personal beliefs, but it is a violation of his duties to threaten the Library in an attempt to impose his personal beliefs on everyone. We trust our neighbors to decide for themselves what they and their families read. The signers of this petition stand together to defend our public library against those who attempt to force compliance via threats of defunding, and therefore threats to the library’s very existence. Our brave servicemembers have fought for generations to preserve our individual liberties and freedom to think for ourselves, safe from such activist government overreach. We ask our elected and appointed leaders at the County, City, and Library Board of Trustees to pledge their support for freedom, and the protection of library funding against illicit political threats.
