MARAC Statement on the President’s Executive Order Restricting Travel


MARAC is strongly against the President’s Executive Order that restricts entry into the United States by people from seven Muslim-majority countries because it is incompatible with our goal to be a diverse and inclusive member organization.  MARAC applauds and endorses the Society of American Archivist Statement on the Executive Order, as well as those by the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Libraries, and other related professional associations.
