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. While I support the active exchange of differing ideas, I do not promote information based on bigotry, racism, violence or white supremacy. Some of the ways that I actively work to engage antiracist practices and strategies in the work that I do are to

  • openly discuss whiteness, privilege and racism
  • remain reflective of my own privileges and practices
  • provide information that specifically supports breaking down structural racism

I am proud to work with students of any citizenship status, culture, religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, class and identity. I stand with all people targeted by state-sanctioned violence. As a librarian, you can talk to me.
