DPLA Digital Equity Project Information Session
DPLA is beginning a three-year Digital Equity Project, which will become the basis for how DPLA approaches support of community archival projects in the future and will have the potential to broadly inform practices throughout the field.

Over the next three years, DPLA, thanks to support from the Mellon Foundation, will invest in community-based and community-serving partners to increase their capacity to lead high-impact projects that advance racial justice in their work. DPLA will provide grants for underrepresented, under-resourced archives and create network-building opportunities to ensure these organizations can become equal participants in sharing historic collections.

The Digital Equity Project will support 7-8 community archival projects through 1) providing subgrants for Digital Capacity Building Projects; and 2) forming a Community of Practice through which DPLA and the collective of subgrant recipients will build relationships, share knowledge, develop solutions to common problems, and grow our collective capacity.
We invite you to The Digital Equity Project: Advancing Racial Justice in American Archives Project Information Session, where we will share the early-stage plans for this work.
