Solidarity with Ukrainian archives and archivists

The Society of American Archivists stands in solidarity with Ukrainian memory workers in this dark time. We also stand with our colleagues of Ukrainian and Russian heritage who live in the United States; we recognize their fear and anger as they protest the actions of Russia, and demonstrate concern for their loved ones either facing armed conflict, or protesting in their home countries.

We join the International Council on Archives to provide assistance to those working in neighboring countries in its call to the Russian government to respect the 1954 Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict.


The National Disaster Recovery Fund is available to any repository that holds archival records or special collections need not be a member of SAA. These funds will be available for any repository in Ukraine that needs support, though it is our greatest hope that they will not be needed.
