J. Paul Leonard Library Workers Statement on Anti-Racism

Workers of the J. Paul Leonard Library affirm that Black lives matter and condemn the murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and countless Black people at the hands of the police. We stand in solidarity with the protesters calling for the abolition of police terror and violence, and acknowledge the role that white power structures, including libraries, have played in systemic racism. As JPLL library workers, we will take actions to support Black Lives Matter and help dismantle the machinery of white supremacy.
