Bos (V) The Book Banning Crisis - What Can We Do?


December 15, 2023
5-6:00 pm EST


Julie Collins, (Red Wine Blue), will frame this important topic.

 What is happening?
What is the impact?
What can we do about it? 

Julie Collins, National Organizer of the Red, Wine and Blue Organization, has been heavily involved in fighting for our rights on a variety of fronts, including gun sense legislation, the disparity in maternal healthcare for black women, and book banning.  The current push to ban books in our schools is happening in a number of states across our country.  The implications of this are significant to our freedoms, and to the education of our children and grandchildren.  How can we stop this wave?  Julie will share ideas and resources.
