The People's Archives of Police Violence in Cleveland
If you have a story to share, we can record it that day and add it to the archive with your name or anonymously. If you have flyers, photographs (physical or digital), or other material to share with the archive, we can make copies to add that day.
The People’s Archive of Police Violence in Cleveland (PAPVC-http://www.archivingpoliceviolence.org/) provides a way for Cleveland citizens to share their experiences with, or commentary on, police brutality. This archive allows people to document and preserve their stories and gives others access to them. In this way, police abuse is brought into the light of day as one step on the path to justice.
“...The only way to bear the overwhelming pain of oppression is by telling, in all its detail, in the presence of witnesses and in a context of resistance, how unbearable it is.” –Aurora Levins Morales
