REMCo Statement Condemning Police Brutality and Racism against African Americans and People of Color

The Roundtable for Ethnic Minority Concerns (REMCo) is a section of the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA) that serves as a voice for ethnic and minority members. We, the Executive Board of REMCo, are using our voice to condemn the death of George Floyd at the direct hands of an officer and the inaction of three officers with the Minneapolis Police Department. We echo the statement of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) and encourage REMCo members in using their voices and platforms to speak out against the institutionalized racism, hatred, and violence that have resulted in the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many Black Americans, Indigenous people, and people of color.
