Community Box Project, funded by the Alliance Fund of Southern Arizona, helped individuals and organizations across southern Arizona to consider and preserve their own distinct personal histories. Through hands-on training workshops along with the distribution of ‘archival’ boxes, the Community Box Project placed the power of preserving our many complicated histories into the hands of the people who are living and breathing and making change in our communities. Jamie A. Lee facilitated hands-on workshops with Southern Arizona Senior Pride, PFLAG Tucson, and Tucson GLBT Chamber of Commerce.

If you and/or your LGBTQI+ focused community organization would like to participate in a workshop to go through the steps of creating your own archival collection in preparation to donate to a physical repository, please contact the AQA. In-person workshops are on hold during this time of COVID. Stay tuned for further updates.
