*We're moving after 22 years in
*Meet our new Berkeley home*
After almost 18 months of real estate listings, site visits and
financial reviews… we’ve been able to find, finance and secure purchase
of a new home for the Freedom Archives!
We could not have done this without a committed, patient and thoughtful
team that took the time to walk us through the things we didn’t know,
provide support during stressful moments, and centered our values and
vision throughout the process.
We are excited about all the new opportunities that having a bigger and
more accessible space will provide. This new space will help us
safeguard the legacies contained within the archives for many decades to
come. The new building is located in North Berkeley (in proximity to
Bart, AC transit and bike paths), ADA accessible, over twice the size of
our space in SF and full of light!
However, growth is never without some discomfort and we are sad to be
leaving our community at 522 and 518 Valencia Street, the neighborhood,
and the city. We’ve been a part of creating a vibrant fabric of
solidarity and community in San Francisco and relocating, however
exciting, brings up a myriad of mixed emotions.
Overall, we’re humbled by the support of you all and look forward to
continuing our work for years to come. As is the case in any period of
transition, we know that we will need to rely on our community as we
make this change. We would truly appreciate your support.
