Over the past 21 years, the Freedom Archives has become internationally known as a resource for collections of recorded sound, video, and documents related to social justice movements. Our walls, shelves, and bookcases are literally jam packed with materials – and as we’ve continued to acquire such materials it has become abundantly clear that we require more space than the 500+ square feet we are in. Furthermore, as we continue to expand our staff capacity and public programming, we’ll need a larger physical space for organizers, educators, groups, and classes to visit and engage with movement history – one that also prioritizes ADA accessibility and remains reachable by public transit. Over the past several months we’ve strategized with a community consulting organization, reached out to larger donors and family foundations and started preliminary exploration for a new space, hopefully close to our current home. Our work has always been a collective effort. Are you able to increase your donation this year? Do you know someone else who might consider making a generous donation to our building fund? Let us know and we are happy to share more details! In any case we want to embark on the next step of our journey together with you.
