El Sitio Collection (Day Laborer Pavillion Project papers), 1996-1997 | University of North Texas Special Collections
This collection consists of documents and news clippings collected by individuals involved with the creation of the Denton Day Laborers Site (commonly refereed to as El Sitio.). Documents including correspondence and incorporation documents for the Denton Humanitarian Association, have been collected and scanned into a 114-page PDF file which is attached. The collection also includes photographs of the 2006 protest demonstration at the site taken by Dr. Roberto Calderon, as well as photos of the presentation of the documents to the archive in 2009.
In 1996 the Denton Day Labor site at 221 West Collins Street, Denton, Texas, was approved by the Denton City Council in agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation. Under this agreement all costs for the construction, operation and maintenance were assumed by the Denton Humanitarian Association.
