This statement reflects the opinion of the Social Justice and Health Disparities Caucus of MLA, and does not necessarily reflect the official position of the Medical Library Association (MLA).
The Social Justice and Health Disparities Caucus of the Medical Library Association is outraged at the racialized violence Asian communities are facing. We stand in solidarity and in support with our Asian colleagues and Asian communities. We commit to being proactive about unlearning anti-Asian racism, especially the model minority myth, and encourage our colleagues to do the same. We support the statements released by the Latinx Caucus, AAMLA, and other caucuses.
Sent on behalf of our caucus,
Daina Dickman, MA, MLIS, AHIP
Chair, Social Justice and Health Disparities Caucus
