Archive Rescue

While two of our volunteers are in the midst of rescuing Public Good's digital archives, other volunteers are maintaining paper and microfilm records for future scanning. Some are busy discovering and rediscovering lost or misplaced documents from the last fourteen years.

This winter, reading accounts--by freedom fighters worldwide--of the value of accessible archival repositories, I realized how much we have benefitted ourselves from the lessons learned in Hattiesburg, Capetown, Oslo, and Belfast. Reflecting on our own role in the pursuit of greater humanity, it also became clear it was an opportune time for us to return the favor.

With that in mind, we're asking you--our readers and friends--to help us defray the costs associated with this labor of love. Every little bit helps.
