About Our Social Justice Series

Clear Sky Native Youth Council at the Licton Springs site

Each social justice series typically consists of:

  • 3-6 community programs
  • 1 social media campaign
  • 1 exhibit or display

Along the way, one important goal we have is to nurture vitally inclusive community relationships by designing a process that celebrates community-produced knowledge. One outcome of this work is making innovative civic leadership opportunities at libraries for communities who are Indigenous, Black, people of color, housing insecure and court-involved.  Another outcome is finding groundbreaking ways to imagine racially just libraries that are versed in critical social justice issues.
