The Postville Project works to collect, preserve and present the stories and materials related to the community of Postville, Iowa before, during and after the 2008 immigration raid at the Agriprocessors meatpacking plant. Luther College and the University of Northern Iowa organized The Postville Project in an effort to preserve and exhibit the media and stories surrounding the 2008 immigration raid and the memories of the community both before and after that event.
