Crisis, Disaster, and Tragedy Response Working Group

The Crisis, Disaster, and Tragedy Response Working Group (CDTRWG) maintains and updates SAA’s Documenting in Times of Crisis: A Resource Kit; develops and provides immediate and ongoing resources and response assistance to archivists, allied cultural heritage professionals, and their communities in times of tragedies, disasters, or other crises; and builds partnerships with organizations focused on relief efforts and cultural stewardship and preservation. The CDTRWG continues and builds upon the work of SAA's Tragedy Response Initiative Task Force.

SAA has created a set of Pandemic Response Resources with information for managerial advocacy, support for displaced archives workers, and other resources to help the archives community navigate this global health crisis.
