SRRT (Social Responsibilities Round Table)

 View Only
last person joined: 2 days ago 

The Social Responsibilities Round Table works to make ALA more democratic and to establish progressive priorities not only for the Association, but also for the entire profession. Concern for human and economic rights was an important element in the founding of SRRT and remains an urgent concern today. SRRT believes that libraries and librarians must recognize and help solve social problems and inequities in order to carry out their mandate to work for the common good and bolster democracy.

    Hi, Al!

    May I ask for clarification about what you envision as a boycott of disaffiliated states? Alabama hasn't disaffiliated with ALA yet, but it's certainly trying.
