SRRT (Social Responsibilities Round Table)

last person joined: 23 hours 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.

    Please excuse cross posting. I'm posting this for Kat Calvin, who would like to include libraries in the work being done to make sure everyone has access to an ID: 

    Calling all library associations! Project ID Action Fund is working to increase access to IDs for all who are eligible, and we are looking for library associations that may be interested in supporting policies to that end. Libraries across the country are on the front lines of providing resources and support for each community members, including those with the least access, and we want to be sure that your wisdom, insight, and ideas are included. If you would like to hear more, please email Kat Calvin at kat@projectidaf.org!
