Believe it or not, we’re living through history right now. That’s why the Rutgers University Libraries want to collect artifacts and memorabilia from the present day.
If you took part in yesterday’s women’s march in Morristown, or one of the “sister” marches across the state, you should consider donating your signs and protest memorabilia to Rutgers – for future historians.
Any donated items will be part of the library’s Women’s March Archive Project, which itself is a section of the Rutgers’ Special Collections and University Archives.
