REFORMA Statement on Solidarity with BCALA

The REFORMA Executive Committee stands in solidarity with the Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) in condemning violence and racism toward black people and all people of color, and has endorsed BCALA’s statement condemning increased violence and racism towards Black Americans and people of color. As other library associations have recently made statements in support of BCALA and #BlackLivesMatter (APALA, ALA), REFORMA also supports the right to protest and rebel against white supremacy, police violence, state violence, systemic and institutionalized racism, and the militarization of police forces.
