Censorship of Books

56th General Assembly
December 1981
Boston, Massachusetts

Across our nation there is a growing effort to ban books from schools and public libraries.


  1. The UAHC affirms its support for First Amendment guarantees of free speech.
  2. The UAHC calls on public school boards and library boards across our country to resist these pressures; and
  3. The UAHC asks its congregations and their memberships to urge public school boards and public library boards to support these First Amendment rights and to give support, as necessary, to those that do.
