“I support our union because I love museums and I love my job. I love serving the public. I believe strongly in the values and potential that our museum holds and I want those things to be realized as much as possible. At their best, museums have the potential to equalize institutions that increase accessibility to lots of different knowledge and act as a significant public good. However, the exploitative history and current challenges of museums has to be recognized and dealt with in meaningful ways- a lot has to change about how museums work in order for them to truly serve the community. I believe that as museum workers and members of the community, we are best equipped to make decisions that impact all of us. In order for our museum to fully realize its potential and truly act as a public good, it has to operate democratically and with accountability to staff and the public. I believe our union can get us there!”
