Dear Friends,

The work of the Archives was honored by the 25th Annual PEN Oakland 
<http://www.penoakland.com/> awards this weekend.  The award was to 
recognize our work challenging censorship - based on our ongoing news 
and prison information and for our addressing subjugated history. 
Archives co-founder Lincoln Bergman accepted the award on our behalf. 
Claude Marks and Nathaniel Moore also attended and were joined by 
founders Nancy Barrett and Nina Serrano to share the honor. Oakland PEN 
is dedicated to “dispel race, class and national hatreds and to champion 
the ideal of one humanity living in peace in the world,” with special 
emphasis on multicultural achievements.

As we sum up this successful year for the Freedom Archives, we thank you 
for your support, for attending our events, visiting our new search 
site, and for all of your contributions to make our work more dynamic 
and relevant to the many struggles of the present and future.

We know you’ll agree that this exciting work needs to continue and its 
impact deepen and grow.

Our deepest hope for this work is tied to newer generations accessing 
and using our materials to broaden their vision of a more just future. 
Our many interns and volunteers learn about a history of resistance that 
also supports their work and vision.

*Preserve the past – illuminate the present – and shape the future!*
