United States : Conversing with the Ethnic Affiliates of the American Library Association Webinar.

As part of ALAs President Loida Garcia-Febo efforts in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion, the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) has invited ALAs affiliate members of the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color to an online conversation to share their history, projects, and news on May 1 at 1 p.m. CST.

Affiliates include members of diverse ethnic groups among their membership and also include library workers serving ethnically diverse communities. While affiliates are associations not governed by the American Library Association or within ALA's many divisions, their mission and work align with ALA's values and mission.

There are many opportunities for collaboration between ALA and its affiliates; ALA staff members attend affiliate meetings, promote their programming, and attend annual conferences if possible. To learn more about affiliates visit: http://www.ala.org/aboutala/affiliates/affiliates.

This free 90-minute webinar will feature information on ALA's six ethnic affiliates as well as user-focused resources. Attendees will hear from the below six ethnic affiliates:

American Indian Library Association (AILA)

Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA)

Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA)

CALA Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA)

Joint Council of Librarians of Color (JCLC)

The National Association to Promote Library & Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish Speaking - REFORMA.
