Hi all,

Our first *Unpacking *discussion is this Thursday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. via
Zoom. If you would like to participate, please visit the blog
<https://unpackingdiscussion.weebly.com/> and complete this sign up form
<https://forms.gle/8wXq5QsgeY994u6t7>. We are not publicizing the Zoom link
to help mitigate potential issues.

Our discussion topic for this month is bigoted words and phrases. Come with
questions, examples, strategies for removing phrases from our vocabulary,
or simply prepared to listen and learn.

After the discussion, we will provide a comprehensive blog post sharing
resources and strategies. We will also announce our topic for May. Please
let us know what questions you have. Hope to see many of you soon!

*Unpacking  <https://unpackingdiscussion.weebly.com/>*is a discussion-based
forum created to provide a space in which white and white-identifying
individuals can examine the realities of their white privilege. Through
conversation, we explore how to actively dismantle systems which oppress
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and from which all white and
white-identifying individuals benefit. *Unpacking* is designed for the
communal education of white and white-identifying individuals, but welcomes
all people who would like to contribute to or engage in this work.
Additionally, though *Unpacking *is rooted in conversations about race, we
welcome a broad range of topics which can help libraries and museums to
become more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible.
