Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services (ODLOS) Town Hall Meeting

Friday, January 20, 2017
12:30 pm to 2:00 pm, US/Eastern

**The Town Hall Meeting will be in lieu of an in-person ODLOS Advisory Committee Meeting**


Location: GWCC B203

This past year has been extraordinarily hard on communities of color and marginalized identities. Numerous shootings, sexual assaults, attacks in the legislation against the rights of GLBT communities and an election that continues to challenge our identity as a country. As librarians, we continue to advocate and fight for the communities we serve, but we need to recognize how our personal identities impact our work and our profession. This town hall was proposed as an opportunity to come together and start some healing within our organization. We will review the progress of initiatives within the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services and across the association, then we want to hear from you. The Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services invites everyone to join us in this space to reflect together.
