Usage and Access Policy

Policy Statement
The aim of the Esperanza Digital Archive Collection is to preserve, retain, and provide access and context for the materials we have digitized. We encourage people to use the available audiovisual materials to advance knowledge and encourage others to utilize these records in educational ways. As a testimony of the organizational and community history of the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, these video archives provide a visual gateway into the past of one of San Antonio’s oldest social justice cultural arts organizations.

You are free to stream the video as many times as needed as long as the usage is for educational purposes.
