SRRT (Social Responsibilities Round Table)

 View Only
last person joined: yesterday 

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.

    I just learned that disability advocate Judy Heumann passed away Saturday. I know she didn't work in libraries, but her work impacted so many people that I felt compelled to share with my SRRT family.
    And if you haven't seen it, "Crip Camp" is an excellent documentary on the disability rights movement and heavily features Judy Heumann. It's free at (Does contain mild language).
