AALL’S Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Updates & Resources

AALL’s Stance on Racism

Last updated:  March 21, 2023

AALL stands against racism and we fully support the Black Lives Matter movement. AALL is striving to do better as an Association to bring more awareness to the biases in the legal information profession, and to help others understand the impact of racism.

Racism has no place in our Association, policies, practices, or behaviors. As AALL’s Ethical Principles state, “We value diversity. We strive to diversify our membership by creating environments and services that promote inclusion of historically underrepresented people as colleagues and patrons.” Diversity and inclusion is part of AALL’s core values.

We are listening, and we are committed to the fight against racial injustice and discrimination. Thank you to those of you who have sent us ideas on what AALL can do better. Please continue sending your ideas to AALL.

Below are updates on AALL’s recent initiatives in the fight for change as well as helpful resources and articles on anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
