DLF's mission is to advance the common good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies. What kind of community-building and concrete action is necessary to enact this mission now, in our present historical moment? Can our systems and technologies work toward social justice and against oppression? What lessons can we learn from other collectives? How might we more effectively work together to identify and dismantle the structural inequities holding back the liberatory potential of digital libraries, archives, and museums?  Join us for a conversation with organizers and experimenters.

This panel will be moderated by Yasmeen Shorish.
