Core Values Lighting Our Way: Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Intellectual Freedom

How do school librarians transform library policies, programs, and practices to create equitable, diverse, and inclusive spaces that support K-12 students in exercising their right to thrive? The presenters, all practicing school librarians, will share ways they have implemented change in their library spaces and will engage participants in critical discussions and reflection about how we can further improve our practices to achieve social justice within our sphere of influence.
