FLA Statement on Racial Justice

Dear Colleagues,

The Florida Library Association stands with library workers, with library users, and with members of the communities we serve who are vulnerable to acts of prejudice, violence, and discrimination. The insidious and persistent racism present in our nation denies its residents equal rights, equal access and basic humanity.  We at FLA are anguished and outraged by the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and many other Black people killed by those who are supposed to function as our community partners to ensure safety, security and justice.
