Shapiro was the West Coast mainstay of the Medical Committee for Human Rights (MCHR), which worked around broader human rights issues related to the practice of medicine, and of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), the Nobel Prize-winning group that opposed the building and proliferation of nuclear weapons. Approximately a third of this collection consists of the papers from these two groups: publicity, minutes, organizational records, correspondence, and more. A second significant segment of these papers concerns Shapiro's involvements in the 1960s and 1970s, particularly those in support of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, and his work around prison issues, particularly the San Quentin Six. He also did work on medical aid for Vietnam, involvement in the Mobilization to End the War in Vietnam, and the rebuilding of Bach Mai hospital.
