[Libs-Or] To ALA or Not...

Someone on a list I'm on recently posted that they were hesitant to renew
their ALA membership because of the recent ALA Press release scandal.  You
can read about it on Librarian in Black here:
http://librarianinblack.net/librarianinblack/alastatements/. The person who
posted asked the group what they thought about renewing their ALA
memberships.

I'm not a member of the ALA, but I work with them on issues concerning
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.  I'm on the ALA EDI implementation Work
Group and I try to represent marginalized people who can't afford
membership or conference participation (among other things).

For the rest of my response, please see my blog post on this subject:
