Message from the MARAC Chair regarding Charlottesville

The violent events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 11 and 12 were appalling, horrific​,and defy core American values. The entire Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference stands with our colleagues in Charlottesville and all of the archivists within the Commonwealth of Virginia​.

Over this next year MARAC will strengthen our commitment to diversity and inclusion. As we foster the discovery and preservation of the historic record in the communities we serve, and, more importantly, the underrepresented communities we need to reach we will work to counter hate with knowledge and openness. We can and will make a meaningful difference.
