Toolkit

Right to Learn: Your Guide to Combating Classroom Censorship

November 2022 | American Civil Liberties Union

This toolkit and topical webpage from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) include resources to help individuals fight for their right to learn by resisting censorship in local schools and communities. These resources are intended to show advocates how policy and law impact education and offer suggestions on ways they can take action. The toolkit includes talking points, an overview of school governance, tips for designing a campaign, actions and tactics, and ideas for organizing a community. Through the toolkit and webpage, advocates can find language to use in petitions and letters, ways to engage public leaders, and ideas on how to start a banned book club.
