How can archives foster communities that are engaged with archival practice? Come meet members of the SAADA Archivists' Collective, a virtual network of professional and community archivists, students, and South Asian community members from across the country who are documenting South Asian American history. Strategies centered on archival collections, oral histories, and fundraising are shared to deepen understanding of the textured experiences of South Asian Americans and what is necessary to sustain an inclusive community archive.  (SAADA is the recipient of an SAA Foundation Strategic Growth grant.)
