The murder of George Floyd and the resulting protests have had a global influence, which has strengthened the Black Lives Matter Movement and resulted in a renewed call to action. As a global organization that prides itself on the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, CRL is dedicated to helping the stories of marginalized people be told and their voices be heard, while supporting the ideals of the Black Lives Matter movement. The impact of the recent uprisings have been profoundly felt, first-hand, within the CRL community. We feel compelled to share these experiences as a means to shine a light on the systemic and social racism that continues to permeate our society. We are heartened by the outpouring of support for these ideals by our member libraries and instituions and we offer our support for their public statements. We are CRL and we stand with you. Teletha Brown Head of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives
