Fighting Back against Censorship: One Librarian’s Story

After being fired by the High Plains Library District in retaliation for opposing their discriminatory program policy and speaking out to my community about being told to cancel my programs for LGBTQIA+ teens and youth of color, I embarked upon (and won!) a two-year legal battle in pursuit of justice for myself and my community. Learn more about my story, as well as the strategies I used to protect myself, advocate for and rally my community, prepare for litigation, navigate the media, affect change in both policy and practice, and rebuild my life.
