Esperanza Peace and Justice Center

Historias Familiares Virtual Workshop

Join the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, the Historic Westside Residents Association (HWRA), and the Westside Preservation Alliance (WPA) on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 11 a.m. CT via Facebook, YouTube and Twitter for a virtual archival workshop, Historias Familiares, with Donna Guerra, a certified archivist and a Co-Curator with the Museo del Westside. This workshop will focus on caring for your documents, photos, and memories. Donna will share practical suggestions for taking care of our family historical materials, even in conditions that are not ideal, in our humid climate with plenty of critters! She will also present budget-conscious ideas for protective storage for: different types of photographs; paper documents; digital files; leather items; clothing; and old family films. Most importantly, we want YOU to be part of the conversation. Those who register to participate by Zoom are eligible to “show and tell” (3 minutes) about an item, and get advice about how to best care for it. We will likely only have time for a few participants, so please have your item ready. Register at Your questions are encouraged! We are cultivating the community and working to identify community archivists!
