As a dynamic organization with international affiliates, ARLIS/NA is committed to diversity and inclusion within the art, design, and librarianship professions. However, recent United States Presidential Executive Orders and proposed budget cuts are an obstruction to creative expression, cultural enrichment, lifelong learning, and are a threat to the diverse communities that libraries serve. The Public Policy Committee presents a session on acts of political and social resistance in libraries. Such action on the part of librarians is in harmony with ARLIS/NA Core Values, which recognize the central importance of the visual arts and cultural heritage in enriching the lives of a diverse audience. This session will highlight efforts to resist the negative impacts of the current political and social environment through library programming, instruction and policies.
