Each year in October we celebrate American Archives Month to highlight the importance of archives and the work of archivists. The theme for Vermont Archives Month in 2020 is Vermont Voice and Vote.
In a year that brings us a new census, a presidential election, and the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, we ask you to stand and let your voice be heard! Share information about your archival records that relates to elections, census, and women’s suffrage; that highlights the issues and movements of underrepresented populations; or that otherwise features the voices and participation of Vermont’s residents. Through our documented history, we can discover ways that the words and voices from our past inform our lives and the issues of today.
Please join us in our celebration of the history of Vermont by planning an event and sharing details through this site, and by participating in as many as you can!
On October 14th, Governor Phil Scott proclaimed October to be Vermont Archives Month! Read the proclamation here.
