About the AWE Fund Organizing Committee

The Archival Workers Emergency Fund Organizing Committee began meeting on March 13, 2020 to organize aid for archival workers affected by COVID-19 as institutions temporarily closed and moved to remote work in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The Committee continues to meet weekly on Friday at 2:00 p.m. ET to coordinate development of the fund with the SAA Foundation.

If you are interested in getting involved in the AWE Fund Organizing Committee, please join our Google Group. We have teams working to fundraise, share the stories of archival workers, and find ways to collaborate across our networks.

For more information, please contact Jessica Chapel and Lydia Tang at awefund@gmail.com.
