Moms for Liberty Broward Official Statement
Regarding Challenged Books
Moms for Liberty is dedicated to protecting children and parental rights in education and in all levels of government. Moms for Liberty nationally and locally has never banned any books, we follow the laws that protect children in school. We are challenging the books available to minors without parental knowledge or consent that contain graphic content such as rape, incest, sex and pedophilia. We’ve also challenged inaccurate depictions of history and divisive concepts such as critical race theory. These books do not belong in our K-12 public schools. If a parent chooses to expose their child to these books they are available at the county libraries or they may purchase them elsewhere.
As an organization, we encourage critics and those that oppose the removal of these books from our public schools to present arguments to the district as to why minors should have access to them without parental consent. Evidence indicates that sexualizing children can destabilize them emotionally, mentally and physically. There are zero benefits and it serves no purpose in fulfilling academic achievement. As adults it is our responsibility to protect our children from both physical and mental harm. Additionally, explicit material in schools violates Florida State Statutes F.S. 841.012 3(b); F.S. 841.001 6(a-c); F.S. 1006.34.
Moms for Libraries is a Moms for Liberty foundation that works to place age appropriate and educational literature into school libraries and classrooms. Several publishers have provided book donations nationwide and we are actively trying to collaborate with the Broward County School Board to place these books in our schools.
All parents have the right to direct the upbringing and education of their children. They have the right to know what their kids have access to on school campuses. The initiative to protect the innocence of children and to advocate for parental rights is a non-partisan one.
