Hi there metadata librarians community, please consider signing this
petition to request that OCLC change the FAST subject heading from "Illegal
aliens" to  "Noncitizens" and "Undocumented immigrants" or more specific
headings as recommended in the SAC report. https://www.change.org/p/oclc-

OCLC is a member-driven library cooperative--please let them know how you
feel about them using the term an ALA Council resolution described as
"dehumanizing, offensive, inflammatory, and even a racial slur."
