Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) Archive Recovery—Recovery Volunteer Sign-Up and Professional Recommendations
2
On 23 January about 9pm, a fire started in the historic, landmarked Chinatown building owned by the City of New York. The building houses local cultural non-profits and the archives of the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA). As of 4pm the following day, the fire was still not 100% contained and the Museum staff have not yet been able to enter the building. The MOCA archives will have a long road ahead of them to recover from this disaster.

This sheet was started by volunteers. It is shared with the archive community to collect the names or archival and disaster recovery specialists—so that MOCA will have a list of resources, experts, and interested volunteers. If you or your institution or business can volunteer expertise, materials, or hands-on skills—please sign up below. Note that the information entered below will be public, so only contribute the personal contact information you are comfortable with sharing publicly. MOCA will respond directly and as recovery plans and timelines are developed. Thank you for your support.
