ALA President Speaks Out Against Executive Orders

The American Library Association’s (ALA) president, Julie Todaro, released a statement condemning the new administration’s recent actions as counter to the core values of ALA, which include access to information, confidentiality and privacy, diversity and inclusion, and intellectual freedom. “The American Library Association strongly opposes any actions that limit free access to information, undermine privacy or discriminate on any basis. This includes the temporary suspension of visas and entrance to the US based on anyone’s nationality or religion as well as the increased scrutiny of any individual’s communication such as mobile phone and/or social media activity,” she writes. “Our nation’s 120,000 public, academic, school and special libraries serve all community members, including people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities and the most vulnerable in our communities, offering services and educational resources that transform communities, open minds, and promote inclusion and diversity.”
