The North Carolina Library Association (NCLA) stands with our Roundtable for Ethnic and Minority Concerns (REMCo) and the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) in condemning police brutality and racism against Black Americans, Indigenous people, and people of color. We stand with our members who are suffering under racial inequality and will do everything in our power to show our solidarity and promote our supported beliefs of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Library workers across the state have stepped up over the past few months to offer services to those who need it, regardless of color, creed or religion. Every citizen who uses our resources receives the same treatment and rights of access. It is time for our local, state and national leaders to learn from us and to treat all citizens with the same respect.
For more resources and links, please see REMCo’s statement regarding the murder of George Floyd at: https://nclaonline.org/remco.
Thank you to all the organizers, presenters, and attendees for making
NCLA's 2020 virtual conference a success! Presentations can be found on NCLA's YouTube channel!
