The 44th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage is scheduled for 12:00 PM PDT on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at the Manzanar National Historic Site, located on U.S. Highway 395 in California’s Owens Valley, between the towns of Lone Pine and Independence, approximately 230 miles north of Los Angeles (see map below).
The popular Manzanar At Dusk program follows that same evening, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at the Lone Pine High School gymnasium, located at 538 South Main Street (U.S. Highway 395), in Lone Pine, nine miles south of the Manzanar National Historic Site, across the street from McDonald’s (see map below).
For further details on these events, please follow our press releases on our blog, http://blog.manzanarcommittee.org.
Credentials will be required for all media, commercial photographers, and film crews for the Manzanar Pilgrimage and the Manzanar At Dusk programs. We encourage those covering the events to pre-register via e-mail, so that we can have a credential and media packet ready for you upon arrival.
To request a credential, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than noon PDT on April 22, 2013.
Please note that our media packet will be distributed on CD-ROM ONLY (Mac and Windows compatible; all files will be in Adobe Acrobat/PDF format).
The Manzanar Committee has also established guidelines that all print, broadcast, and Internet media, along with any film crew, must follow while covering the 44th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage and/or the 2013 Manzanar At Dusk program (click on image above to download).
Please note that the media guidelines for Manzanar At Dusk have been revised as a result of moving the program into the Lone Pine High School gymnasium.
Be advised that the National Park Service (NPS), which administers the Manzanar National Historic Site, has established guidelines for media, and generally requires permits for filming. The guidelines for coverage of the Pilgrimage do not supersede those of the NPS. Rather, they are meant to complement NPS guidelines for the afternoon Manzanar Pilgrimage event only. Please be sure to review their guidelines at http://www.nps.gov/manz/planyourvisit/permits.htm, and file any permit requests, if necessary, before making the trip to Manzanar.
Questions and requests for further information prior to the events should be sent to email@example.com.
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.
