Visible Minority Librarians of Canada Network Statement on Anti-Black Racism

In the wake of the recent murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers, the Visible Minority Librarians of Canada Network has published a Statement of Solidarity to condemn violence and racism against Black people and People of Colour:
"We call on library and information services leaders, staff, and advocates of all races and backgrounds to acknowledge what is happening in their societies, to have open dialogues with their staff and institutional leaders, and to design and implement policies on equity, diversity and inclusion. We call on everyone to fight hatred and racism against Black people, against Indigenous peoples, and against all People of Colour and to continue to enforce that racism has no place in our institutions, our policies, our practices, our physical or virtual spaces, or our behaviours."
