Book Banning – Take a Stand

LWVGP Leadership at the Book Banning WorkshopThanks to your hard work, our workshop, “Book Banning: How to Fight Against It,” was a huge success at LWV’s national convention last week. Ninety delegates attended in person; another 66 delegates participated via Zoom. Our display table at the back held giveaway items:  96 books that have been challenged or banned in the past 10 years, book bags printed with our logo, and a donation box. Workshop participants left with books, a bag to carry them and the energy and information to take a stand against book bans in their towns.  We also offered a copy of our presentation.  Share the information widely!
