Georgia Citizens Defending Freedom Takes a Stand for Education Reform

Updated: Mar 15

ATLANTA, GA – Georgia Citizens Defending Freedom (CDF) convened alongside local citizens in a concerted effort to raise awareness concerning several pivotal proposed Senate Bills poised to significantly impact education across the state of Georgia.


CDF, whose core mission includes providing oversight and accountability into America’s public education system, joined together with legislators, advocates, and education-focused organizations like Moms for Liberty, Georgians for Responsible Libraries, and Truth in Education to host the event. Senate Bills 154 and 390 took center stage during the conference. If passed into law, these bills stand to change the educational landscape in Georgia.


SB154 would prohibit “Harmful to Minors” materials in Georgia’s school libraries.  Current loopholes in the state’s statues allow obscene materials to find a home on Georgia’s school libraries shelves. This new proposed legislation seeks to rectify these oversights by placing school libraries under current state-wide laws pertaining to moral and obscene offenses, thereby safeguarding the educational environments for Georgia’s students.


SB390 will see the state of Georgia sever all ties with the recently disgraced American Library Association (ALA). Under the proposed bill, state and local entities will be prohibited from spending tax-payer dollars on the Association. Additionally, future directors of public library systems in the state will no longer be required to hold a master’s degree from schools with library programs with ALA accreditation. The ALA’s Marxist ties and attempts to radicalize children have brought about a wave of concerns from citizens across Georgia, demanding that their tax dollars no longer fund the destruction of values in their state.



In addition to the dozens of advocates and organizations who came to support the proposed legislation, abolitionist, speaker, and author Jaco Booyens spoke at the event. He sat down with CDF’s National Media Director Lindsay Rives to discuss the detrimental psychological effects on children who are exposed to obscene content in printed educational materials. Watch the interview here.As these bills progress through the legislative process, it is crucial for Georgia citizens to engage with their elected representatives and advocate for their passage. By voicing support for these measures, Georgia’s citizens can actively shape the future of education and ensure the well-being of students statewide.
