Librarian Claudia Rivas is one of only 25 individuals selected to participate in the inaugural cohort of the Radical Librarianship Institute at UCLA California Rare Book School (CRBS). According to CRBS, “[t]he Radical Librarian Institute is the most extensive library continuing education program focused on supporting library professionals to push for widespread systemic change that is centered on social and racial equality, collective action, community strengthening, and public participation.” Along with attendance at the institute, Claudia was awarded $10,000 through the Mellon Foundation to fund her upcoming Zine Outreach Project which will promote the institute’s mission through a 2-day mini zine fest with related zine workshops to follow.
