Descriptive Summary

Creator: Occupy Wall Street. Archives Working Group.
Title: Occupy Wall Street Archives Working Group Records
Dates [inclusive]: 2011-2013
Abstract: The Occupy Wall Street Archives Working Group was created in October 2011 by Amy Roberts and Jeremy Bold to collect and preserve material related to the Occupy Wall Street protest in the fall of 2011 in Manhattan, New York. The Archives Working Group (AWG) continued to collect materials related to other Occupy protests in 2012 and 2013, as well as climate change and racial justice protests. The Occupy Wall Street Archives Working Group Records document protests by the Occupy movement between 2011 and 2013, and the work of the AWG to collect materials from these protests. The collection also documents the beginning of the AWG through mission statements, draft budget proposals, meeting agenda, and minutes. The bulk of the collection documents the first Occupy Wall Street protest in the fall of 2011 in Zuccotti Park in Manhattan through posters, artwork, fliers, clippings from print and online news sources, letters of support, diaries, born-digital photographs, buttons, textiles, organizational documents, and the movement's newsletter, The Occupied Wall Street Journal.
