Wyoming Family Alliance for Freedom believes in parental control without government overreach. Banning or complicating access to books is not a Wyoming value. Its time for Wyomingites who value liberty to stand up to those who would infringe on the rights of others in pursuit of their own political ideology.

People who advocate for the removal or restriction of a book have rarely read it, relying instead on out-of-context excerpts feed to them from out-of-state groups with political motives to vilify educators and harm public education.
We encourage you to read this review from one of your neighbors, and read the book in question yourself. We believe you will find, as our professional librarians have already established- that the book has merit and value when taken as a whole.
BANNED BOOK REVIEW BY A CITIZEN OF LARAMIE COUNTY
YOU TOO? 25 VOICES SHARE THEIR #METOO STORIES
You Too?: 25 Voices Share Their #MeToo Stories edited by Janet Gurtler
In this excellent nonfiction book, 25 authors share their stories of sexual harassment, abuse, and/or assault. You feel their pain, fear, and humiliation. The authors were brave to share their stories. This type of book can help young people have the courage to speak up if they are sexually harassed or assaulted because they know they’re not alone in their trauma. It can give survivors hope that life can be good again, even after devastating trauma. Reading the stories, though difficult, builds empathy for victims and their tough journey to healing. My hope is that books like this lead to fewer #metoo moments.
