Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Zoom Lens workshop is an immersive experience through which participants are guided to analyze the structures of power and privilege that continue to hinder racial equity and justice in America. Participants will explore the ways that racism and historical issues of bias and bigotry shape our world through societal norms and institutional power imbalances. Special attention will be paid to the history of segregation and legacy of systemic racism in public libraries, and attendees will leave armed with ideas for counteracting this legacy in libraries and beyond. The workshop is led by Suzanne Haley and Jacky McCoy of Changing the Lens, which is a movement dedicated to examining truth, awakening empathy, and activating courageous citizenship.
This program is worth 9 contact hours of continuing education if attend both sessions.
