Statement concerning the incident at the 2019 ALA Midwinter Meeting

The Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA) joins all the ethnic affiliates APALA, AILA, BCALA and REFORMA and JCLC to support for equity, diversity and inclusion. The incident at the 2019 Midwinter where a librarian of color encountered racial aggression was disturbing and caused grave concern.  Racism and discrimination shouldn’t be tolerated in any form or at any occasion. CALA stands with all the ethnic affiliates and ALA to promote awareness and education against racial inequality and abuse especially in our profession.
