BENEFITING: LESBIAN HERSTORY EDUCATION FOUNDATION INC
Join the Archives this fall for a celebration of our fabulous 40th year & help us get ready for the next 40!
For four decades lesbians have gifted their time, energy, papers, memories, and hearts to what has become the longest-running and largest collection of Lesbian Herstory in the world. The Archives began in the apartment of two of its founders, Joan Nestle and Deb Edel, and it now inhabits its own brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The Archives is home to thousands of photographs, tens of thousand of books, and hundreds of special collections from lesbians wanting their stories to be remembered, along with buttons, t-shirts, sex toys, love letters, oral histories, videos, date books, zines, and much, much more.
Created and maintained entirely by volunteers since the beginning, the Archives has always relied on support from the community and allies to keep the doors open.
For our 40th year we need to raise $40,000. Your donations will help us digitize our collections in order to make them more accessible, maintain our off-site storage, and also keep the lights on and the doors open.
Join us in archiving today's herstories for tomorrow!
