Statement from the Pacific Northwest Chapter of MLA

On June 1, 2020, the African American Medical Librarians Alliance (AAMLA) Caucus released a statement about police brutality and systemic racism and violence. We at the Pacific Northwest Chapter of MLA (PNC/MLA) fully support and stand in solidarity with AAMLA and all Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in this fight against systemic racism and police brutality.

In light of recent events and the need to diversify the predominant “whiteness” of our library profession, the PNC is committed to establishing a Diversity Committee that will help our chapter to fulfill our values of diversity, equality, and inclusion. This committee will provide our members with educational opportunities to improve our understanding and practice of anti-racism and amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in our community.

For anyone who needs help getting started, here are some valuable resources specific to the Pacific Northwest region:

In the words of the honorable Martin Luther King Jr: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
