Statement of Antiracism

As a librarian, I am committed to providing equitable information and resources to you regardless of citizenship status, culture, religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, class or identity. I support free speech and ideas from many perspectives and experiences, and I actively work to provide opinions and information sources on a range of topics and ideologies. This is the basis of strong inquiry. While I support the active exchange of oppositional and differing ideas and approaches, I do not promote information based on bigotry, racism, violence or white supremacy. Academic research is capable of causing harm when left uncriticized of its history and power. Some of the ways that I work to engage antiracist practices and strategies in the work that I do are to:

  • Actively discuss whiteness, racism and intellectual colonialism with colleagues and students
  • Reflect on and be transparent about my own privileges and practices
  • Provide information that specifically supports breaking down structural inequities
  • Promote open scholarship and community-generated non-scholarly forms of publishing
