  *We're moving after 22 years in
  San Francisco!*

  *Meet our new Berkeley home*

Dear Friends,

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.

spaces should we know about?

Thank you for allowing us to share this exciting news with you. We look 
forward to building with you in this next phase while we continue to 
preserve the past, illuminate the present and shape the future.


Claude, Nathaniel, Danielle
