TYA Advocacy in the Time of Book Banning

Book bans are a targeted attempt to remove the voices of underrepresented people from our community stories.  What are the obligations of TYA makers to fight this threat, and what tools are needed to be an effective advocate for our youth?  Join a coalition of producers, advocates, TYA artists, and youth for a discussion about what is happening in our industry, and what resources are available to combat the growing threat.  In addition, participants will engage in a community activation to advocate within their organizations and communities.

Featuring: Jody Drezner Alperin, Amber Sales, Brittny Bush, Chris Tennison, Kristy Lozano, Rachel Elizabeth Thuermer, and Troy Scheid.
