03 Jun 2020 4:13 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The DC Library Association Executive Board is committed to supporting the movement for Black lives. As librarians and information professionals, we must work intentionally and without cessation to combat the forces of systemic racism in our lives and in our institutions. We acknowledge the legacy of genocide and racism in the founding of the United States and are committed to combating and repairing it’s effects on our communities and in our workplaces. We, the DCLA executive board, affirm that Black Lives Matter. We stand in active opposition against white supremacy, police brutality, and state violence. In the interest of keeping our communities safe and supporting them, we have compiled a list of national and local resources.

-In Solidarity, The DCLA Executive Board (2019-2020)
