Archives Advocacy in the Halls of Democracy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In August 2018, 65 archivists met with the staffs of 47 US senators and representatives in Washington, DC, as part of the Archives on the Hill (AOH) advocacy event. This was the first-ever coordinated effort by archival organizations to draw attention to the value of archives and the work of archivists. Whether you are a seasoned advocate or thinking about getting involved, come and engage with a few of the AOH participants and discuss strategies for what each of us can do to gain support for archives and make a lasting impact with legislators and government officials at the federal, state, and local levels.
