Manzanar exists today as a National Historic Site because of the dedication of tireless individuals and grass-roots organizations.

You too can make a difference. In addition to visiting the site, learning the stories, and sharing the lessons of Manzanar with family and friends, you can take the next step in supporting the site.

Consider joining Manzanar History Association and/or Friends of Manzanar. Or come volunteer at Manzanar. We have volunteer opportunities for all age and skill levels.

We invite you to become a part of the Manzanar family and contribute to a legacy for generations to come.
