The Freedom Archives documents progressive movements and culture from the 1960s to the 1990s. We also produce original documentaries and educational resources for use by schools and organizations as tools for community building and social justice work.

The Freedom Archives offers a youth development program focused on engagement with these historical materials and providing media production training,

The materials housed at the Freedom Archives—over 12,000 hours of audio and video recordings—include: weekly news, poetry, music programs; in-depth interviews and reports on social and cultural issues; numerous voices from behind prison walls and recordings of diverse demonstrations and activists. We are also in the process of scanning and cataloging thousands of historical documents, pamphlets, journals, newspapers, and other print materials from many radical organizations and movements which enrich our media holdings. The digitized materials in our archives are free for use and constitute a compelling record of 50 years of recorded sound, images and cultural diversity.  The collections are an invaluable resource for young people and students, teachers, diverse community organizations, filmmakers, activists, historians, artists, media outlets, and researchers.

In order to maintain our values and our commitment to illuminating marginalized voices and uplifting stories of resistance, the Freedom Archives does not take any money from government or corporate sources and our budget is comprised of small grants, family funds, and— most importantly—individual donations.
