A People’s Archive of Police Violence in Cleveland
exists as an online archive to collect, preserve, and provide access to the stories, memories, and accounts of police violence as experienced or observed by Cleveland citizens. Organized in the summer of 2015 by a combination of Cleveland residents and professional archivists from across the United States, the Archive hopes to provide the Cleveland community--especially survivors of police violence and the families of victims--a safe and secure space to share any testimony, documents, or accounts that narrate or reflect on encounters or effects of police violence in their lives or communities.

to learn more about its purpose and scope. The Archive, managed by volunteer community members and archivists, will allocate 100% of the funds raised in this campaign towards subsidizing Omeka's Gold Plan hosting fee
Because of all of you who gave and shared this fundraiser, we broke through our fundraising goal in less than 2 hours! We now have a stretch goal to reach $1,000, which would take us to the Platinum Plan for Omeka
and allow the Archive to host 25GB worth of data. A more formal thank-you will arrive soon, but until then, thank you again!
