Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition

The Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition formed in 2013 “to preserve the stories of the Japanese, Germans, Italians, Japanese Peruvians and others at the Tuna Canyon Detention Station, which was operated by the U.S. Department of Justice during World War II and was located in the city of Los Angeles.” In 2015 they received $102,900 from the National Park Service, which administers grants from the Japanese Confinement Sites Grants Program. With the monies, they have designed a museum quality traveling exhibit to tell the story of Tuna Canyon and its prisoners. Find out more about the group and their work…
