No one should be attacked for standing up for their community or speaking out against censorship.
This GoFundMe campaign is raising money to help school librarian Amanda Jones cover legal fees as she pursues protection against those who have been slandering her name after she spoke out against censorship at her local public library board meeting. Educators and librarians across the country are being attacked by groups taking aim at books with LGBTQ+ content and materials related to sex education for teens. This is what happened to Amanda, and she is taking a legal stand on behalf of educators.
Amanda's story was recently highlighted by NBC in an article you can read here.
This could happen to any of us, and we have to take a stand.
Give up a cup of coffee for a day and donate $5.
Amanda has given so much of her time and energy to library and education communities. She deserves our support. Let's show the world that librarians stick together and stand up for what is right.
Any money raised over what is needed to cover Amanda's legal fees will be donated to EveryLibrary to continue the fight to protect others.
