UWB/CC Campus Library Commitments to Anti-Racism: Communication and Accountability

Most importantly, our library is supportive of and accountable to you, our community. We understand the importance of being transparent and open about our commitments and our actions, so that you can be aware of what we are doing and hold us to our promises of being an anti-racist organization.

Our broad commitments are as follows:

  • Openly speak out against oppression and injustice
  • Strive to build solidarity by creating space for and integrating your feedback
  • Be transparent in our library operations and in upholding these commitments

As we take actions to reach these commitments we will detail them below.
