Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries’ (PACSCL) Chronicling Resistance, Enabling Resistance explores new methods for telling the stories of Philadelphia’s rich heritage of resistance. In conjunction with its Center-supported project, PACSCL holds a series of community listening sessions to facilitate discussions between activists, archivists, and the general public. For a portion of the sessions, audience members are invited to share their own experiences with institutional archives in the context of resistance and ask questions about the process of preserving their papers.

All listening sessions are open to the public. See a list of upcoming sessions below.
