Follow The Manzanar Committee On Twitter

LOS ANGELES — On April 20, the Los Angeles-based Manzanar Committee announced that they have established a presence on Twitter, the very popular “micro-blogging” social networking web site.

The Manzanar Committee’s Twitter feed, along with their presence on Facebook, their YouTube channel and their official blog are all part of their work to expand their outreach and educational efforts, especially to younger generations.

Twitter “…is a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time.” You can use Twitter to keep track of new stories posted to the Manzanar Committee official blog—every time a new story is posted, within thirty minutes, it will be automatically posted to the Manzanar Committee’s Twitter feed, which can be routed via text message to your mobile phone…think of it as “Manzanar Committee Mobile.”

For more on what Twitter is, check out Tweeternet.com for a more detailed explanation.

The Manzanar Committee is dedicated to educating and raising public awareness about the incarceration and violation of civil rights of persons of Japanese ancestry during World War II and to the continuing struggle of all peoples when Constitutional rights are in danger. A non-profit organization that has sponsored the annual Manzanar Pilgrimage since 1969, along with other educational programs, the Manzanar Committee has also played a key role in the establishment and continued development of the Manzanar National Historic Site.

    Can somebody notify me when the next pilgrimage to Manzanar takes place? My brother and I were there at age 11 to 13. I wish to see the camp grounds again before I die. I am 80 years old and never been back to Manzanar.

    The Manzanar Pilgrimage is always on the last Saturday on April, which means the 41st Manzanar Pilgrimage will be held on April 24, 2010. Check back here frequently starting in January for more details on the program…we haven’t even started planning for it yet.
