When third-grader Lydia Booth returned to in-person classes in the fall of 2020, the school required her to wear a mask. Given this requirement, Lydia wanted to express her Christian views by wearing a mask with the message “Jesus Loves Me” printed on it. 

But her school required her to remove and replace it. Two days later, administrators announced a policy for the entire district that prohibited any political or religious messages on masks. 

Of course, other students were wearing masks with messages such as “Black Lives Matter.” But Lydia's mask is the one that caused officials to crack down.


Students do NOT need a permission slip to speak freely at public schools. Sign your name to stand up for Lydia and the First Amendment!
