You may not realize it but you can make history. Your old photographs, notes, posters, newspapers, movies, papers that are in the garage or stored in the back of your closet, are important to us.
The Latino history of San Diego is largely unwritten because people do not know about what others have done or their struggles in life.
We will take your old stuff and organize it and make it available to the general public and to students and scholars. Your archives will be a permanent record for others to draw insipiration from.
Don't let other people make up our history. Help give them the truth and contribute your records.
