As library and information services practitioners seek to make their institutions more equitable, diverse, inclusive, and just—here are just a few of the dozens of panels and learning opportunities that will be featured at the conference in support of that work.
Recognition of Indigenous History of Washington, D.C.
The American Library Association would like to acknowledge the indigenous history of Washington, D.C. We recognize the Piscataway Conoy tribe, Pamunkey Indian tribe, Nentego (Nanichoke) tribe, the Confederation of Sovereign Nanticoke-Lenape tribes, Mattaponi tribe, Chickahominy Indian tribe, Monacan Indian nation, and the Rappahannock tribe. Learn more about the Indigenous communities of the region.
Directory of Diversely Owned Businesses
ALA's Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services has compiled a selection of minority, women, disability, and LGBTQIA-owned businesses that attendees may wish to explore while in Washington, D.C. This information was compiled from Intentionalist, the DC Beacon, and the Washingtonian. This is not an exhaustive list, so help us grow it by submitting businesses to the directory!
