Dear Library Community, 

I have always known the library community to be forward thinking and helpful.  Through this journey of writing about sexual harassment in libraries, I have become concerned about the lack of sexual harassment awareness trainings and open and positive dialogue on the subject.  Yes, articles have been written.  Yes, some individual libraries as well as some systems and associations are doing training and having conversation.  That is great and should not be overlooked.  In many cases, though, it is the exact opposite.  

In a profession that is so progressive, why does sexual harassment awareness seem to take a back seat? 

I created a petition about sexual harassment awareness in libraries.  Would you consider signing and sharing? You don’t have to be in the library profession to sign.  

Thank you for your consideration of this request.  Many Thanks!
