Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

At the conclusion of one of the most divisive elections in recent U.S. history, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) proudly reaffirms its longstanding commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. MARAC is committed to the importance of diversity and inclusion in our organization, our profession, and the communities we serve. Our organization serves individuals who protect intellectual freedom, privacy, confidentiality, and equitable access to information  We strongly reject any acts of hate, discrimination, bias, or intimidation against anyone on the basis of ability, race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identification, sexual orientation, or religion.  Accordingly, we have charged a Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion, who will soon make recommendations in support of providing an inclusive and safe organization for all of our members.

Sincerely,
Brian Keough
MARAC Chair
