About

Join us for our 49th annual community-wide Manzanar Pilgrimage at the Manzanar Historic Site for the anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. Manzanar was the site of an American WWII concentration camp that was used to forcibly house Americans of Japanese descent from 1942-1945. The Pilgrimage Program features speakers and performances. It will be followed by an interfaith religious ceremony and community ondo. The GVJCI Itinerary, however, allows for participants (particularly first-time visitors and families) to visit the Manzanar Interpretive Center (founded in 2004) as an option.

Cost is $40 for adults, $25 for students and seniors (65+), and free for any former incarcerees. Students under the highschool age must be accompanied by an adult and a signed permission slip is required for under 18 traveling without an adult. If you would like to reserve a seat on our bus, please email info@jci-gardena.org or call 310-324-6611. It will be a first come first serve basis and registration will end once spaces fill up. Payment will guarantee registration.
