Resistbot Petition: No Book Bans in N.J; Support S3893 & A5499! (N.J. only)

An open letter to State Legislatures (N.J. only)

No Book Bans in N.J; Support S3893 & A5499!

71 so far! Help us get to 100 signers!

I am writing as your constituent to express my support for prohibiting book bans in New Jersey libraries and schools. S3893 and A5499 would protect students, communities, and librarians from regressive attacks on diversity and academic freedom spreading across the country. Municipalities and school districts across the state are facing aggressive action by a loud minority of activists advocating for removing content by and about LGBTQ+ and BIPOC individuals. Libraries have increasingly been placed on the front lines of these attacks as part of a coordinated campaign to politicize New Jersey’s nonpartisan school boards. As demonstrated by the recent Attorney General filing, actions taken in multiple school districts across the state have demonstrated the clear need and urgency to guarantee protections that bolster academic freedom, existing school policy, and professional librarian discretion. Please extend your support for this bill by becoming a co-sponsor and supporting it as it progresses through the Legislature. Thank you for supporting New Jersey’s talented librarians and diverse school communities.
