EveryLibrary and GLAAD Join Forces for a Playbook on Fighting Bans of LGBTQ+ Books

EveryLibrary announced the following:

We’re proud to partner with GLAAD on [a] playbook to help communities fight against book bans that are uniquely targeting LGBTQ Americans.

This guide offers community members step-by-step recommendations to:

  • Organize a diverse local coalition including students, parents, teachers, librarians, LGBTQ advocates, authors, health professionals and clergy.
  • Create fact-based and meaningful messages to inform and inspire all in the community and present to school and library boards.
  • Engage news, social and local media with facts and local interview voices and resources.
  • Inform all in the community including families, businesses, elected officials and taxpayers about the absurdity of book bans, and the threat they pose to vulnerable youth, and the entire community’s safety, prosperity and reputation.  
  • Hold school and library boards accountable to all taxpayers, ensure proper protocol is being followed in book reconsiderations, and demand necessary reforms to end the skyrocketing and discriminatory wave of book banning.

For more information, read the announcement.
