On October 6, 2020, the National Archives Foundation hosted an online program fundraiser supporting the launch of its new Rights & Justice Fund. This program on racism and social justice will support the Foundation's mission and provide vital funding for research, public programs, exhibitions, and educational materials focused on the stories of African Americans and people of color, as found in the records of the National Archives.
