Your voice is needed! Obscene material has been found in at least 40 locations in K-12 grade schools and children’s sections of public libraries across North Dakota. It is reprehensible to have sexually explicit content accessible to children.

SB 2360, a good bill that passed in the State Senate, will be heard by the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, March 14. The bill protects minors by prohibiting the promotion of obscenity, objectionable materials, and obscene performance.

You can read my letter in the Fargo Forum , which provides more reasons SB 2360 is needed.   Letter: We are grateful for lawmakers working to make libraries safe places for children – InForum | Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo news, weather and sports

SB 2360 needs to pass. Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for material that is harmful to children. Also, allowing children to view sexually explicit material is sexual abuse as defined under the North Dakota Department of Human Services, Mandated Reporters.

Please Take Action:

Contact members of the House Judiciary Committee to ask for their support of SB 2360. Ask them to vote a “Do Pass” on SB 2360. The committee members are listed below my signature. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America of North Dakota, please let them know.
