Book bans start out as challenges. Often these are instigated by a small number of parents or even a single person who may or may not have children in the school. It is essential that other parents and community member in your area know these challenges and other attacks, such as gag orders and education intimidation, are happening and can respond. 

Tell us what is happening in your schools and libraries. Please provide as much detail as possible including the name of the school or library, the name or description of the materials being challenged, and the challengers objections and concerns. We will make every effort to understand and verify the issue and then will alert other parents in your area. We will also provide suggestions and support for how to respond.
