CAA Reacts is back! Join us on June 6 from 6-8 p.m. at Empirical Brewery for an informal conversation and discussion on doing the work of decentering whiteness in our institutions. We encourage you to share about work you've been doing or want to do surrounding these issues, and hope to provide a space to learn from each other as well as get inspired to start or continue this work.

To provide some background on this topic, there are some helpful links at this blog post by the SAA Issues and Advocacy section steering committee chair, Courtney Dean: https://issuesandadvocacy.wordpress.com/2019/04/22/steering-share-a-reading-list-for-practicing-allyship-in-archives/

This event is free and open to members and non-members. Due to space limitations, this event is limited to 15 registrants.

---------------------------------------

CAA Reacts is a discussion group geared toward discussing with a local lens the social, political, and cultural factors that affect our profession. The discussions will call into question the idea of archivists as neutral or passive agents, as has traditionally been the standard.

Can’t make it to this event? Don’t worry – there will be more events throughout the year at a variety of dates, times, and locations. Have an idea for a CAA event? Contact info@chicagoarchivists.org!
