As part of API Heritage Month celebration, our students learned about the history of Manzanar. It is important that we teach our students about the past to understand the current state of the API communities and their futures. To honor those who have come before them, our students created origami cranes with messages of hope. These cranes were brought to Manzanar by one of our interns who participates during the pilgrimage annually.
Thank you to our former intern for facilitating an American Sign Language (ASL) workshop for our students!

The students visited the following schools: University of San Diego, University of California- San Diego, San Diego State University and California State University San Marcos.
