Public libraries across the country readily embrace their role as
centers for democracy and civic participation. But what role should
libraries play in advancing social justice and addressing persistent
racial inequities? When it comes to community transformation, how can a
social justice lens and racial equity tools guide us to be more engaged
and inclusive at all levels of our work?

Whether your community is a site of major political action or feels a
million miles away from Ferguson or Baltimore, issues of current and
historical injustice are present in your community every day. Learn how
public libraries can engage in meaningful social justice and racial
equity work by leveraging their existing strengths, supporting
transformational relationships, and developing new tools to support
social change.

Hear from three librarians who are working to center social justice and
racial equity in their day-to-day work. Core principles of diversity,
equity, and social justice will be defined. Whether you are management
or front line staff, we invite you to join us for this important
webinar, where you’ll gain concrete resources and ideas that will help
you feel empowered to step into these conversations and deepen community
engagement.

Registration deadline: June 6, 2016.
