Fight Censorship in Alpine School District
Sign the petition to let the Alpine School District know that we oppose book banning and censorship in school libraries.
Why is this important?
In 2022, the Alpine School District in Utah pulled 52 books from their library shelves, and ultimately banned 22 books for “pornographic or indecent” material.
A large percentage of the banned books were written by LGBTQ+ authors, or dealt with issues of sexuality, gender, and race.
Censoring what students can read takes away their freedom of expression, and limits their ability to think for themselves.
We need to let the school board know that we trust librarians and teachers to choose material that is appropriate for all students.
Sign the petition to let the school board know that you oppose government censorship and support the freedom to read!
