From “Americans of Conscience Checklist” by Jen Hoffman…
-Oppose censorship in libraries. Please contact your local school board (look up). Script: Hi, I’m a resident of [SCHOOL DISTRICT] and I’m opposed to banning books. The American Library Association reports a nationwide increase in parents attempting to remove books from school libraries because they cover LGBTQ+ themes or anti-racism. I support the continued presence of these books in school libraries and I urge you to resist calls for book censorship. Thank you.
