The Jennifer Keck fonds attests to her professional and public involvement in matters related to social justice.

The fonds indicates that she addressed these same issues in her community activism, through her involvement in Better Beginnings, Better Futures, Sudbury Women's Centre, Myths and Mirrors Community Arts, Circles of Strength: Sudbury Breast Cancer Support Group, and through frequent contributions to local media. Her work as a researcher for the Anti-Mercury Ojibwa Group and for her own publications on government job creation initiatives, labour and community issues is also represented in textual form.

The speeches, presentations and workshops that are documented in the fonds reflect her struggle with cancer, her commitment to the underprivileged and her strong affiliation with feminist theory and practice.

The fonds comprises course and teaching materials, documentation, professional correspondence, administrative materials, and items that attest to Dr. Keck's scholarly output, such as presentations, publications and workshops. The fonds also contains photographs, physical objects and audio and videocassettes.
