Libraries have long promoted social causes and supported social movements, like the fight for civil rights and the women's movement. And librarians are working to both preserve this grassroots history and to educate their communities about today's social issues. For this program, activists, historians, librarians and other creative thinkers will discuss their research and involvement in promoting civic engagement and human rights, inviting conversation about how librarians can become engaged in social movements.
