At Howard County Library System, we condemn racism, xenophobia, misogyny, hatred, and racial and gendered violence in all forms against all people.

We believe in standing against racism and hatred each time it is in our midst, and strategizing and enacting change until America’s promises ring true for all people. We believe true and lasting change requires true and lasting intention to learn, grow and act.

That is why we have sunset Choose Civility and launched a new initiative, Brave Voices, Brave Choices.
