Recent Milestones in the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies

The Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies has been recording testimonies of survivors, witnesses, and bystanders of the Holocaust since 1979, when the project started as a grassroots effort here in New Haven. It currently holds more than 4,500 testimonies, comprising more than 10,000 hours of videotape, recorded by Yale and more than 30 affiliates worldwide.

Freedom to Marry archives offer insight into a modern civil rights movement

Same-sex marriage has evolved from a far-fetched notion to established law in the United States over the past four decades. At the forefront of this modern civil rights movement has been a Yale alumnus, Evan Wolfson ’78. Wolfson wrote his Harvard Law School thesis on same-sex marriage long before it became a topic of national & local activism. He founded Freedom to Marry in 2001, serving as its president until the Supreme Court’s historic 2015 decision guaranteeing marriage equality.

Yale Library Staff Association Food Drive in Support of IRIS

Between November 16-December 14, the Library Staff Association (LiSA) is holding a food drive, with drop-off locations in several Yale libraries. We invite everyone to donate non-perishable food items and personal care items to benefit IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services), a New Haven-based agency that helps resettle refugees in CT and provide lifesaving support to assist in their transition to life in the United States. Your donations will go toward stocking the apartments of resettled refugees and the IRIS food pantry.
