Preserving Our History
The Tanforan Assembly Center served as the unjust detention center for nearly 8,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans during World War II in 1942. We want to ensure their stories are remembered and that this injustice is never repeated against any peoples.
TACMC is currently constructing the Tanforan Memorial, a bronze statue and memorial plaza. We have also sponsored a photographic exhibition of works by Dorothea Lange and Paul Kitagaki Jr.
