Walla Walla Coronavirus Stories Collection

Description

Whitman College and Northwest Archives is creating a digital archive of the Walla Walla community’s experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. As our community begins to reopen, it is important to reflect on our experiences of the pandemic, including our experiences at work and school, our social and family interactions, and the changes to our routines. We welcome submissions from all members of the Walla Walla and regional communities. In partnership with the Walla Walla Mutual Aid Network and the Socially Engaged Art Committee of the Walla Walla Immigrants' Rights Coalition, we hope to highlight voices that are not always included in archival records of our community. By collecting and archiving stories, we hope to shed light on disparities that immigrant and other marginalized communities face, while also highlighting their resiliency and their ongoing vital contributions to our community. To read more about the project and how to participate, visit our website. We invite continued submissions of stories to this project. To make a submission, click here. Continuamos aceptando cuentos para este proyecto. Si gusta mandarnos su cuento, oprima aquí.
