Library work is embedded in and inherently tied to socio-political circumstances. The programming in this conference examines librarianship through the lenses of social justice, diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racist work, Black studies, Latinx studies, Indigenous studies, cultural and critical ethnic studies, intersectional feminism, critical disability studies, postcolonial and decolonial studies, and queer interventions in digital studies.

The LAUC-B Conference's branding and visual language was developed by designer Sarah Chieko Bonnickson.

Sarah Chieko Bonnickson is an inquisitive creative interested in questioning and blurring arbitrary boundaries between disciplines. Recently, she has been interested in performing practices of documentation from fields such as history, archeology, biology, and botany to explore the biases, expectations, assumptions that those fields bring to their respective views of the world. Her research-based practice builds upon a longstanding interest in reframing and recontextualizing common, everyday objects or subjects to disrupt hierarchies of value embedded in cultural norms. Sarah holds an MFA in Design from California College of the Arts, a BA in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley, and draws from a wide range of ever-growing interests and experiences to develop ideas and create work.
