First Meeting: Librarians Organizing for Racial Equity (LORE)
Wednesday, February 19
7:00 PM, PT
Location TBD, Zoom Access Available
Librarians Organizing for Racial Equity (LORE) is a new group for UW MLIS students, formed with the goal of racial equity education in a profession that is overwhelmingly white. Through growing pains and discomfort, LORE aims to become more competent in understanding the extra burdens that library staff of color have to deal with in institutional racism in libraries as well as academia. LORE strives to collaborate on the future of equitable librarianship.
Please note: This group is open to anyone who is in the MLIS program at UW.
CW/TW: This will be a place where there are white people processing race/racism. At this time, all members of the organizing team are white. Input, critique, and collaboration with students of color is welcome.
