Increasingly, archives venture outside their walls to engage with community partners to create and amplify records of groups whose stories hadn't been previously collected. While building these collaborative relationships is time-consuming and demanding, it is imperative and rewarding too. This panel will explore the centrality of community partnerships in the diversification of the archival record, featuring programs that have hosted grant-funded community engagement activities to create and collect documentation of historically underrepresented groups.
