Anti-racism resources to support Asian Americans: Getting Started

University Libraries statement against racism

Asian woman stands with her dog. She holds a handwritten sign that reads "Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."

Asian lives matter. Black lives matter.  Indigenous lives matter. The lives of all marginalized groups matter.

As an institution devoted to the pursuit of knowledge and intellectual development at a Catholic institute of higher education, the University libraries are committed to the continual work towards justice and equity. It is not enough for us to not simply state this, we must continually work and learn to be anti-racist and to put our learning into action.  That work requires listening, reflection, learning, questioning, and acting to bring justice.
