Chicago Protest Collection

Share your story


Building on a strong collection documenting 20th-century social and political activism in Chicago and the Midwest, the Newberry seeks to collect an enduring record of the many individual voices and personal expressions of Chicagoans participating in public demonstrations in the city or elsewhere. The library invites people to help document protests, counter-protests, and demonstrations of support for a variety of causes across the political spectrum.
