Sign our petition to tell the Fluvanna County School Board we want to keep books on library and classroom shelves.

Why is this important?

The Fluvanna County School Board removed 16 books from library shelves after receiving a complaint from one person. We appreciate that two of these books have been put back on the shelves, and we call on the Board to keep ALL books on the shelf unless and until they have been properly and fully reviewed as required by policy and law.

As the nonpartisan Vet Voice Foundation has stated in a March 18th letter to the School Board, in which they urged the Board to take a definitive stand against book bans, “As service members, we pledged our lives to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. This oath is sacrosanct, embodying our dedication to the liberties that have long set our nation apart, including the freedom of speech and the unfettered right to access information. When books are banned, and voices are silenced, it is not just an attack on these rights but a direct affront to the very essence of democracy and the freedoms for which we, as veterans, have served to protect.”

Please sign this petition and stand with our veterans in calling on the School Board to protect the freedoms and liberties of ALL Fluvanna County residents and students and keep books on library shelves unless and until a full and transparent review process has been legitimately completed per law and policy.
