The Friday Conversation - Gun Violence: Community Voices and Library Responses Other McCormick Place Convention Center
S105a-c
Description :

Chicago has been plagued by gun violence, which affects each of us. What are the causes? Unemployment? Poverty? Absentee parents? Violent Videogames? “Holes in young people’s hearts,” as one Chicago pastor believes?

What can libraries and librarians contribute to the solution of this heartbreaking problem?

Please attend this free pre-conference, continuing the Richard Harwood “community conversations” tradition of President Maureen Sullivan and others before and after her. The mission of the group is to apply what many learned about “turning outward” to listen to our communities and using that information to shape library responses—in terms of information and services.

The session will be introduced by Michael Pfleger, Pastor of St. Sabina’s Church in Chicago and a fervent gun safety activist in our city. Then a panel of community members affected by gun violence—parents, students, gang members, librarians, and researchers—will be led in a discussion by CM Winters Palacio, a librarian at Malcolm X College in Chicago. The session will end in breakout sessions where you will have an opportunity to share your ideas.

We hope that this will be the first of several sessions at future ALA conferences, so that librarians can continue to play an active role in using their strengths to address community problems.
