About the project

Anabaptist History Today (AHT) is a collaborative, community storytelling project with support from seventeen Anabaptist archives and history organizations in the United States and Canada.

Anabaptist History Today’s immediate goal is to create a historical snapshot of Anabaptist experiences during the unprecedented events of 2020 and following. AHT creates a crowdsourced mechanism to capture overlooked stories, documenting what individuals and communities are doing at the local level.

The Anabaptist community has a centuries-long history of using stories to strengthen the bonds of faith, practice, and identity across geographical space. AHT seeks to build upon that tradition by showcasing the diversity of the modern Anabaptist community and amplifying the voices of those often erased from the dominant historical narrative.
