The Equity Fellowship is a BIPOC mentorship program that awards funding for
two years of ALA and ALSC membership, one year of registration and travel
stipends to both ALA Annual and ALA Midwinter Conferences and provides
valuable mentoring and networking opportunities. This is the second round of
Fellowships and some of our first Fellows have gone on to chair ALSC
committees, attend the Morris Seminar, represent ALSC in ALA Assemblies and do
other amazing things. Becoming an Equity Fellow is a great way to build
leadership experience and contribute to the important work we are doing as a
national organization committed to serving all children. To learn more about
this program or complete your application please visit the Equity Fellowship

Learning about racial justice is an ongoing and evolving process and all are welcome, regardless of where you are on your journey. Even if you have experience using Project READY we invite you to join us.

Project READY is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded to the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the School of Library and Information Sciences at North Carolina Central University, and the Wake County (NC) Public School System.

These past few months have really opened up the conversation about education and outreach. The need for virtual opportunities has grown tremendously as schools shifted to distance learning, and the Black Lives Matter movement has amplified the ngeed for GSO to more inclusively engage with underrepresented K-12 students in ocean science.
The Office of Marine Programs (OMP) continues its efforts to communicate ocean topics to a wide variety of audiences, but to specifically address emerging outreach needs we would like to introduce the new Ocean Classroom program to the GSO community.

We know many of you already participate in education and outreach efforts or would like to. It would be great to know in what capacity, so we compiled this short survey to gather that information.
Thanks in advance for contributing by completing the survey.
Expanding the reach of GSO research and initiatives is important, and we look forward to discussing this with you on the 30th!

The Urban Librarians Conference has gone virtual for 2020 for the health and safety of our participants. We have reopened registration and hope that you will join us on September 11th, 2020!
If you would like to support your fellow library workers during these tough times you can purchase a Solidarity Ticket to send someone who needs the support to attend the conference. If you are experiencing financial difficulty and cannot afford the $35 registration fee please fill out this form
and we will work to do everything we can to get you to the conference. All information shared is strictly confidential. If you know someone who may be interested in attending, but needs a hardship waiver, please pass this on!
See you in September, it’s gonna be a different conference than we usually have but you can bet it will be every bit as scrappy, kinetic, and fun as ULCON always is.
