The events, outreach to our youth, the resources we are creating, and all the things we are doing are making a difference in our community. We are reminding the community of the beauty, contributions, history, and culture of historic Little Manila and its people.
We all know that the ability to honor our history and teach it to our youth is long overdue. Please consider making a donation to Little Manila so we can continue to make a difference. Click here to donate.
