Archivists Supporting Activists
Documenting the Now is looking for archivists and other memory workers who are willing to share their time, resources, and expertise to help activists document police violence. We know that activists are interested in building their own archives to document their activities (
), and during this time of heightened police violence against them, the ability to connect to resources that can help to document these abuses is vital. Please fill out this form to be added to a *public list that will be shared on social media*. Our hope is that activists will use this list to request support for their archival needs.
