Description: Program provides direct support to community-based archives that represent and serve communities marginalized due to oppression based on race, ethnicity, national origin, class, gender, sexuality, religion, or ability. For the purposes of this call, community-based archives are defined as collections of materials gathered, collected, and shared primarily by members of a marginalized community to document their collective histories. This year, the Foundation plans to prioritize those applications that are based in community advocacy and archive activation efforts.
