Far-right extremists are silencing survivors of sexual assault, challenging and banning their books – including Shout, by Pennsylvania resident Laurie Halse Anderson.
Shout, a best-selling memoir of a rape survivor who refused to be silenced, is facing a ban in PA’s Central Bucks School District, and has already been banned in multiple Texas districts. Extremists call it pornographic.
Thousands of school board seats are up for election this year across Pennsylvania, including Central Bucks. Now, you can support our work for school board candidates, and get a banned book by a PA author.
Anderson bravely defended her book at a Central Bucks School District meeting, saying “Our children are already hurt … They need us to have the courage to talk about the hard things, to make a safe place for them to say what happened to them.”
Our students must know that women won’t be silenced.
At Turn PA Blue, we work year round to recruit canvassers, send texts, and raise grassroots donations for candidates up and down the ballot.
We don’t take off years – we need your help to take back school boards this November.
