In the spirit of our shared Dominican values of Community, Justice, and Partnership, we the staff of the Oscar Rennebohm Library stand in solidarity with the Black community. We emphatically condemn all forms of racism. As librarians, openness to information, the search for truth, and support of dialogue are fundamental to our being. We believe that racism and intolerance are unacceptable.
We recognize our privilege and stand committed to using our roles and resources to work to end systemic injustice.
We also stand committed to:
In the words of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, “being an antiracist requires persistent self-awareness, constant self-criticism, and regular self-examination”. This ongoing process will be difficult and often uncomfortable. However, a commitment to denounce racism, oppression, and hatred as a library and as a larger campus community is needed now more than ever.
Yours truly in partnership and love,
Oscar Rennebohm Library Staff
