Hello! We are The Jones Library’s Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Subcommittee (JEDI), a volunteer committee of stakeholders in the community and the Library system who are charged to:
“critically examine, including through the solicitation of community feedback, the policies, procedures, and culture of the Library. The subcommittee will further engage the community to develop and recommend an Equity Framework and Action Plan to guide the implementation of changes at the Library to repair, heal, and renew our institution and seek to ensure that the Library serves the community in a manner where diversity thrives, inclusion and belonging is the norm, and equity in all its forms is a guiding principle.”
We are at the beginning of our engagement with this work. We would like to start by surveying you, the public and other stakeholders in the Amherst Public Libraries, about your experiences here.
This initial survey is brief and centers on your experience of belonging or not belonging when you visit the Amherst Public Libraries. We are defining belonging to mean feeling safe, considered, represented, included and empowered. We would love to hear your definitions.
