This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Jill Jacobson, Nathalie Voit, Peter Clark, and Jonathan Plante.

The battle over inappropriate reading material in school libraries has sparked some interesting legislation and not a small amount of pushback. Jill Jacobson explains how the Texas READER Act’s noble goal faces constitutional challenges.

The Supreme Court may have done away with Affirmative Action in its recent decision, but many universities still use discriminatory admissions policies. Nathalie Voit says it’s time to end legacy admissions.

Arizona has joined 25 other states in legalizing over-the-counter contraceptives. Peter Clark says, it’s about time!

The lessons of prohibition are lost on regulators when there’s something they wish to ban. Jonathan Plante says the FDA’s proposed menthol cigarette ban will increase cartel profits and crime.
