The Joint Council of Librarians of Color Inc. (JCLC Inc.), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, serves as the fiscal agent and resource advisory supporter of the Conference.
JCLC strives to deepen connections across constituencies, create spaces for dialogue, promote the telling and celebrating of one’s stories, and encourage the transformation of libraries into more democratic and diverse organizations.
The conference includes speakers, skills-building workshops, research-based panels, networking opportunities, and exhibits. In addition, JCLC deepens connections across constituencies and beyond, and unifies and strengthens the voices of each association.
