Rainbow Round Table of the American Library Association

Mission Statement

The Rainbow Round Table (RRT) of the American Library Association (ALA) is committed to serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, pansexual, genderqueer, queer, intersex, agender, asexual, and ally (LGBTQIA+) professional communities and population at large. We are committed to encouraging and supporting the free and necessary access to information, as reflected in the mission and priorities of the American Library Association.

The RRT provides its members, other ALA divisions, affiliates, round tables, offices, committees and the library and information science field as a whole with a forum for discussion and an environment for education and learning about the needs of the LGBTQIA+ professional communities and population at large.
