Time’s Up! is excited to announce that our remarkable 30-year history is currently being archived at the Tamiment Library at New York University. Time’s Up! archiving project is not only a true history of how communities can create change but also becomes a guide that individuals and groups can use to be empowered to create positive local change from the streets up to global heights.
Our uniquely effective style of direct action—combining fun with education—is documented in 25 years of calendars introducing hundreds of different themed group bike rides that have encouraged new riders and advocacy which have in turn put pressure on the city to create the sustainable infrastructures, including the bike lanes, that we now see emerging all over the city.
Early street posters, going back to the 80’s, announcing events to defend our first amendment rights and promote community gardens, public spaces and green alternatives and a myriad of other outreach, education and promotional resources will also be included in the archiving collection.
Over the years Time’s Up! environmental organization has worked with thousands of volunteers and community members, who are the true heroes of our many victories, and worked tirelessly with limited resources to educate and organize thousands of events, campaigns and workshops for positive sustainable change.
This archive at the Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives will be open to the public and serve as an important resource for scholars, planners, innovators and activists.
