Because libraries and archives are never neutral. Taking a closer look at the relationships between organizing information and community organizing. We talk to information professionals, activists, and other insightful folks who have thoughts about what we mean when we say, “knowledge is power”. Hosted by two new librarians figuring things out as we go. We are based on the unceded and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
