Our grant will be used for continuing the project of creating an open-air plaza memorializing the Tanforan Assembly Center.
The project will create a permanent memorial consisting of a bronze statue and open-air plaza located between the San Bruno Bart station and the shops at the Tanforan mall. The memorial will become a destination for school and community group field trips who are exploring local Bay Area history, as well as become an inspiration to the commitment of equal justice under the law, both for now and in the future.
