Discussion Draft Resolution on Libraries as Responsible Spaces

by Martin Garnar on Fri, Jun 23, 2017 at 05:25 pm

Hi all.  First, some background: as part of the discussion on our recent resolution on gun violence, some of the drafters felt that we needed a separate resolution on libraries as safe spaces, so a small working group (Melissa Cardenas-Dow, Aaron Dobbs, Martin Garnar, Laura Koltutsky, and Mike Marlin) began working on a draft after Midwinter in Atlanta. After some discussion and initial feedback, the resolution is now being taken up by the Committee on Diversity and will be brought to Council II on Monday as part of the COD report.

Laura will be bringing this to Council Forum on Saturday night so that any feedback may be brought back to COD's final meeting on Sunday afternoon (1 to 2:30 p.m. in MCP W474b)so that changes can be incorporated before bringing it to Council on Monday morning. Alternatively, you can share your comments here on Connect, but please make those comments before 1 p.m. on Sunday so that we can consider them for the final draft.

Thanks!
