Margaret Alexander Candidate Statement 2020

I am new to academia, teaching my first online class for the University of Washington this past Winter, and joining the University of Oregon Libraries just this January, but I have a long history of working in local government and participating in state and national professional organizations, as well as personal social justice work. I have recently helped to write State library legislation, and to update and expand State Library Standards, and have invested years volunteering in local women’s legal activism. As a professional technology librarian, I am dedicated to ensuring access to information, transparency in governance, and to making heard the voices of those who need support. My fresh perspective will be valuable as we enter a new era post-pandemic, developing new ways of communication and teaching and exploring how to rebuild our community in sustainable ways.
