We wanted all our members to know that ACRL New Mexico believes Black lives matter. Libraries are not neutral and must be vocal about where we stand. We stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues and communities and condemn acts of racism, state-sanctioned violence, racial terror, and injustice.
If you are looking for resources to help in your work in the MLIS field we suggest starting with Disrupting Whiteness in Libraries and Librarianship: A Reading List and Anti-racism Resources for White People and Parents. We are open to further suggestions and look forward to that dialogue.
