Join LeVar Burton, and 150+ other artists and creative leaders in condemning book bans and calling for an end to hateful censorship

Ron Desantis and MAGA Republicans have banned hundreds of books...

So We're Giving Them Out for Free

From Our Banned Bookmobile​

About the Tour

MoveOn’s first-ever Banned Bookmobile is going on a multistate tour to sound alarms about Governor Ron DeSantis’s censorship and the rising wave of GOP book bans across the country.

DeSantis’s—and the MAGA movement’s—vision for America is a place where our stories, our identities, and our communities are banned. That’s why we’re launching the MoveOn Banned Bookmobile tour that will distribute some of the most frequently banned books in some of the communities most impacted by the bans.

The Stakes Are High

We must come together to fight for our freedom of expression, to build community, and for young people to be able to see themselves reflected in the classroom through their stories and identities. DeSantis’s bans are an attack on all of our freedoms, but he cannot erase us.

Despite book bans being terribly unpopular, Governor Ron DeSantis and the MAGA movement have banned or challenged more than 2,500 books throughout the country this past year.

Just last month, a Florida school banned “The Hill We Climb,” the moving poem Amanda Gorman recited at President Joe Biden’s inauguration, saying it would now be off-limits to young readers after one parent claimed the poem was “indoctrinating” students. The school, which claimed the poem is “not educational,” also banned “The ABCs of Black History,” a book intended for readers ages 5 and older.

We Must Fight Back

In response, Gorman, the first national youth poet laureate, described feeling “gutted,” explained that she had written the poem “so that all young people could see themselves in a historical moment,” and said, “We must fight back.”

That's where our Banned Bookmobile comes in.

With our members chipping in to fund the Banned Bookmobile, we’ve now launched our multi-state tour this summer! We will use this as an opportunity to have conversations with voters about the MAGA vision for our country, provide resources for people to get involved to help defeat the GOP in 2024, and keep the topic of book bans surrounding DeSantis on the campaign trail.

All while giving out as many banned books as possible to students and others who have lost access to them thanks to MAGA politicians like Ron DeSantis.

Ways to Get Involved

Our rights, our stories, and our identities are all under threat.

We want to make sure that as many people as possible have the chance to read these books and that we spread the word far and wide that DeSantis and the MAGA Republican Party are supporting book bans and censorship, on top of their other dangerous and extreme policies that restrict our freedoms. 


You can take action by signing the petition to demand that Republican governors and legislatures stop banning books in our schools and libraries. Together we can make clear that Americans believe in the freedom to read and learn and reject book bans and censorship!
