Activism as Leadership

Lua Gregory and Shana Higgins, librarians at the University of Redlands and editors of Information Literacy and Social Justice: Radical Professional Praxis, facilitated a discussion on the importance of connecting the core values of librarianship with leadership and activism. They situated their work/research as emerging from previous and current activism that librarians have and continue to engaged in by having a fun trivia contest. Small groups were created and given a professional core value to process/imagine/generate ideas on how librarians can engage with each core value. It was a great way to end the day and start happy hour.
