Equity in Action: Solidarity in Social Justice
Tuesday, April 26
Register above to apply for a seat in this three-week course.
Tuesdays, April 26, May 3 and 10, from 11:00 am-1:00 pm PT with an ongoing facilitator-led workshop over 3 weeks. (Recordings available).
Explore the fundamentals of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion and how to work in solidarity with all members of your library community.
Learn the fundamentals of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion and how to work in solidarity with all members of your library community — including BIPOC, the disability community, the queer community, the undocumented and underserved. Of course, that includes co-conspiratorship between members of one marginalized group and another–and acknowledging that many people have more than one such identity.
This practical, how-to course explores the building blocks of social justice at the library and examines how to ensure that equity work is truly inclusive of all people, including staff and patrons, by centering the lived experience and priorities of those most directly impacted. The focus is on understanding the issues and their context, and finding appropriate ways to respond to complex situations.
In this online guest speaker program and workshop, you’ll learn from an outstanding group of experts of key concepts of solidarity and anti-oppression and define a personal project that inspires action in your community.
