Right-wing officials in America are going further off the rails all around the country—and their latest horrifying tactic is banning books. They want to squash any voices that are different from their own and keep the next generation from accessing information they don’t want them to read.
It’s the same fear-mongering and misinformation that we see from right-wing every day when it comes to legalizing cannabis.
America’s highest aspiration – to become a more perfect union – is under attack. Book bans should never, ever be an option, yet Republican governor after Republican governor is trying it.
We’re fighting back against the extremists who want to ban books and cannabis. Join BOWL PAC, Blue Future, and Progress America and tell the Department of Education to stop book bans. Add your name today!
Former President Obama just put out a rare, blistering statement condemning Republican book bans—and he’s right. Public libraries, librarians, and public schools play a crucial role in supporting access to literature and diverse perspectives and offer us the best opportunity to build a society that can coexist and thrive together.
And because we run a marijuana policy reform PAC – I feel forced to connect these dots for you: This is about the right to make our own choices about what we consume—not dissimilar from our fight to legalize marijuana.
It’s time the Department of Education rejects ANY attempts to censor literature and ensure that all Americans have the right to access these powerful tools.
Thank you for your unwavering support for a society that embraces diversity, values knowledge, and empowers its citizens to make their own choices.
