As does each of our member institutions, the TRLN central office recognizes and is committed to addressing the racial injustices that are increasingly coming into the mainstream public eye. For now, today, that means definitively denouncing and condemning the acts of racism and violence that have plagued our country in recent weeks (and have plagued many peoples, throughout history).
Additionally, we want to publicize the relevant statements of our member institutions, share a few external resources, and invite you to send any ideas or suggestions for how we can facilitate learning and action among our TRLN community. We anticipate that Rhondda Thomas Robinson and Jennifer A. Ferretti, the keynote speakers at our Annual Meeting, will provoke thought about the role our libraries and consortium should play in continuing to recognize and dismantle racism.
