Oberlin Group Statement on Racial Injustice

The Oberlin Group, a national consortium of libraries at liberal arts colleges, stands with people of conscience across the country as we condemn all violence against Black people and People of Color. When one human life is mistreated, we are all diminished. Recent incidents are indicative of deep and systemic patterns of racism and oppression. We further condemn the violence of structural racism evinced in the disproportionate number of deaths and deleterious health and economic impacts People of Color are facing in the current COVID pandemic. We also reject any racist or xenophobic narratives that situate the root cause of the pandemic with Asians or Asian/Pacific Americans.
