Librarians of Color (LOC) Forum

Librarians of Color Mission and Vision Statement

The mission of the Virginia Library Association Librarians of Color Forum is to inspire and empower and connect librarians and library staff of color through knowledge, opportunities, and mentorship. Additionally, our aim is to provide allies with opportunities to support Librarians/Library Staff of Color in professional growth, retention and overall success within the field.

The vision of the Virginia Library Association LOC Forum is to connect Librarians of Color by sharing national and local news of interest to promote information on scholarships, grants, and fellowships, committee and board appointment opportunities to ensure representation and inclusion, and to create formal and informal career mentorship pathways via social and continuing education events.
