A Toolkit for Self-documentation

$1,570 of $2,500 goal

Archivo, a toolkit for self-documentation, is a project we have been working on for a year with local community partners, Latino Advocacy and Community to Community. Archivo includes a booklet guide, a calendar to keep track of documents collected, and folders for each year of documents. The original intent of Archivo was to help undocumented individuals collect and organize documents needed for deferred action, specifically the DACA program. 

Today, we face the reality that the Trump administration plans to cut the DACA program and increasingly detain and deport people in communities across the US. We probably don't need to remind you of the promises made during his campaign. Archivo remains useful because the very documents that are needed for DACA are the ones that can be useful during emergencies, such as getting out of detention on a bond. Archivo is a practical tool that  guides people to collect and organize copies of documents that prove their residence, employment, education, and continued presence in the US.

Seattle Area community leaders such as NWDC Resistance , Latino Advocacy , and Community to Community Development remain committed to organizing with people in detention as well as with non-detained immigrants. Archivo is just one of their organizing tools, and we need your help. 

What we plan to do with funds raised:
- Continue to ship kits to immigrant rights organizations nationwide. With your help, Archivo kits will be distributed for free at community workshops organized by our collaborators
- Printing of new materials to communicate about expected changes in legal protections and information about basic rights when confronted by ICE or the police
-Any remaining funds will be donated to NWDC Resistance

Thank you for your support! 
¡La lucha sigue!
