    I am an elementary public school teacher who is interested in going on the Pilgrimage in April. I would also like to take my twin 12 year old boys. How can I sign up for the trip? As a Jewish American I have always been outraged by the Internment. Thank you, Norman Levine

  2. Gann Matsuda says:

    There’s no need to sign up. The event is free and open to the public.

    We will be publishing more information in late February and in March as we finalize program details, including the availability of bus transportation from the Los Angeles area.

    We would need to take bus up there as we don’t drive.

    How do you sign up for the bus trip for the Manzanar Pilgrimage? Is there a fee? What are the hours?

    If i decide to drive up, is there a specific time that the Pilgrimage will begin? What is the itinerary/program for the day?
