First held in 2006 in Dallas, Texas, and then again in 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri, the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color brings together a diverse group of librarians, library staff, library supporters, and community participants to explore issues of diversity in libraries and how they affect the ethnic communities who use library services.  It will be held next on September 26-30, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

More updates regarding the conference and JCLC Inc. will be forthcoming via the organization’s website.  Please visit the JCLC Inc website, where donations can also be made to support JCLC’s work to advocate for and address the common needs of librarians of color.
