Confrontation is difficult for a lot of people. Confronting racism and talking about issues around race are very difficult. But the Hospital Library Caucus (HLC) leadership believes that we must speak out.
The Latinx Caucus of MLA unequivocally condemns the actions of George Floyd’s tragic death and killing by the Minneapolis Police Department as well as previous Black and African American victims of police brutality and state-sanctioned violence.

The Libraries in Health Sciences Curriculums Caucus (LiHSC) stands in solidarity with the African American Medical Librarians Alliance Caucus and the many MLA members and caucuses who have already put forth statements condemning police brutality.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are values of the Nursing and Allied Health Resources and Services Caucus (NAHRS). In accordance with MLA’s vision and values, NAHRS interprets diversity as understanding, accepting, and valuing differences.
